I travelled to Tombstone, Arizona yesterday. This town, of course, is best known for the gunfight at the O K corral during it's wild west days. The old courthouse has been turned into a museum and it has the most interesting historical displays. Everything pertaining to the founding of the town by a silver prospector to the infamous Earp/Clanton shootout is on display here. The town once was a thriving community with three theaters that brought in well known entertainers. Now it is more of a tourist-y trap. The main street is filled with western wear and antique shops. I am glad I stopped, though, if just to get the feel for the area.
