Tombstone, Arizona, is famous as the site of the "shoot-out at the OK corral" between the Earps, Clantons, McLaurys and Doc Holliday.

County courthouse.


A couple miles out of town...Edward Schieffelin was the first miner in the area, and named his claim "tombstone" in reference to a joke by his friends who said that was all he would find.


City Hall.


Sidewalk signs.


JL Silver.


Fallen Angel.


Famous Bird Cage theater.




Bird Cage host.

thanks for taking us back Kyle, love this place because it has so much to offer. That is one of the best photos I ever saw of the courthouse, never could get it right. There was a fire recently in the town that destroyed a couple of buildings. Thanks for sharing, great shots.

Thanks for the compliment, Bob. The wires and trees make it a bit of a challenge.
