We left Tombstone and began our 424 mile, 9 hour trip through New Mexico for Van Horn Texas. We picked up a hitch hiker and dropped him off in Lordsburg where we got stuck at the gas pumps behind a truck that locked their keys in the ignition. After a short stop to see the worlds largest roadrunner made out of garbage in las cruces, we continued on through El Paso where we stopped for supper. Tonights RV park was to be a KOA for $40
Bisbee Arizona offers a great place to spend the day on a walking tour. The art community dearly love their little town and enjoy sharing it with tourists. Visit the Queen Mine and take the tour, sample some chocolate made directly from the cacao bean, climb the many sets of stairs or wind your way through the narrow passage ways. We enjoyed our whole food meal at the High Desert Market (twice) and after a full day said to ourselves “we could so easily live here!”
when we first went to Bisbee, we had a restaurant in mind, but it was closed for renovation. When we asked about a place that serves up good whole foods (shouldn’t be too hard in a hippie dominated town) or vegetarian meals, we were told about the High Desert Market and Cafe. It’s where the locals eat in Bisbee. We were so happy with it that we ate their twice.
The Shady Dell RV Park in Bisbee is actually a vintage trailer park that has some RV hookups. Featuring vintage trailers from the late 1940’s and 1950’s, the park acts like a motel allowing you to rent trailers from an era gone by. It was photos of Dots Diner we saw in Bisbee that grabbed our attention. Once seeing them, we knew we had to get some shots ourselves.
We spent a full day in Tombstone, taking in the gunfight at the OK Corral, meeting the OK Corral Blacksmith, taking a tour on the trolley through town and out to Boot Hill Cemetery, learning how to play Farrow with Doc Holliday and meeting Caesar the Tombstone Biker Bird.
