Day 267 20180924

The Town Too Tough To Die is the decription that Tombstone gives to itself and given our location and having a bit of time between our last ride at Tombstone Monument Ranch and our first ride at our final ranch, it was worth a short visit.  Tombstone itself is a proper town that people live in, and then there is the tourist area that consists of the main street, some museums, tours, shows, shops and bars.  The highstreet has been wonderfully maintained and a number of buildings are clearly still the original, if not most of them.  We stopped for a drink and meal in Big Nose Kates (she was Doc Holliday’s companion) and then had a quick stroll up and down the road.  The merchandise wasn’t quite my cup of tea, but I’m glad to have been and seen some elements of what the wild west really was like.
