Day 5 of our 8-day southeastern AZ road trip found us breaking camp early and headed to Bisbee for the night. We stopped off at Sandy's Restaurant at the intersection of 191 and 181 near Sunizona for a fantastic breakfast. Service was fast and attentive. The decor was All-American down to the flags outside. We gobbled the food like we were starving. Sandy was so impressed we asked if we wanted dessert.

Was a quick drive to Bisbee. The nice manager of the Bisbee Grand let us check in early, probably noticing that we were anxious for (and obviously in need of) a good hot shower. We strolled around town for the afternoon snapping photos, and visiting the sites, and having libations at the Copper Queen with a very entertaining bartender, though she preferred the term "professional mixologist". Even went over to Lowell, the nearby ghost town I'd never heard of. Dinner was at Roka, highly recommended but make reservations.

Headed north the next morning for a touristy visit to Tombstone. I'd never been there. MJ had and was ready to go after 5 minutes. We spent 4 hours. But you just have to see the gunfight at the OK Corral reenactment, don't you? Bought a t-shirt and a bad hamburger at one of the saloons. Sat by the guy who had just played Doc Holiday in the gunfight. He was posting stuff to his Facebook page via his smart phone, but did know that Holiday was born in GA near where I grew up. However, he didn't know that Holiday, according to local legend, engaged in his first shooting as a teenager during a dispute about a favorite swimming hole down on the river. After I informed him of this he sniffed and returned to his phone, wiser but unimpressed.

Did Boot Hill and purchased ice for the cooler and libations for later that evening at the historic Wyatt Earp's Minute Market near Boot Hill.

Commemorated my first (and likely only) time in Bisbee and Tombstone with a video. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.co...
