Replica stagecoach at Tombstone, Arizona

Location: Tombstone, Arizona, USA

And now for something completely different!

I went to Arizona with some friends this past February, and one of the places we visited was Tombstone, known as a 'wild west' mining town in the late 19th Century.  Tombstone, which calls itself "The Town Too Tough to Die," is the home of the Boot Hill Graveyard, and the O.K. Corral, scene of a famous gunfight.

Nowadays, the historic area of Tombstone is closed to motor vehicles during daylight hours, making it easy for tourists to roam the streets, which are lined with shops and restaurants.   Replica covered wagons and stagecoaches, like the one in this photo, offer narrated rides around the town to tourists.

It was a lot of fun. Many of the shopkeepers, etc. were dressed in clothing styles from the late nineteenth century. It was like stepping back in time.
