Tombstone - The Town too Tough to Die!

Well that's what the town motto is, and I guess it's true. The would be gold mine town of the 1800's that's best known for the famous gunfight between the Earp brothers and the "Clanton-Cowboy" gang is till there a major tourist attraction!
We were able to overlook the "commercial" aspects of the place and enjoy the rustic flavor....
most interesting was the visit to Boot Hill Graveyard, well the famous still lie!

for those interested in learning more about the shootout at the OK Corral, watch the 1993 Kirt Russell movie "Tombstone", we did the night before.....
Oh, and remember to allways pack your .44
