...and on to Tombstone

After spending a night in the Copper Queen hotel in Bisbee, AZ - we continued on to Tombstone. It is the tourist town that I expected to see. They didn't get any of my money. The power was out all over town. Didn't explore Boothill, didn't see the shootout at the OK Corral, didn't get my picture taken dressed in cowboy garb - didn't do much in Tombstone.

Did find a great road out of Tombstone towards Nogales and a nice Mexican restaurant (Mercedes) in Patagonia. Dave had planned on eating lunch at the Velvet Elvis Pizza shop there, but it was closed on Tuesday (?).

The day ended with a mind and butt numbing 75 mile ride on flat straight roads from Tucson to Apache Junction, but that is a small price to pay for a very enjoyable road trip with a couple good friends.

I'm sure Dave will post a map and more pictures on the weenerbagotales blog.

It's no British Columbia but it looks nice.
