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.
