THE Trip, Tombstone Arizona, Home of The OK Corral and Shoot Em Ups, Part 2

Copyright 2011, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

In the afternoon in Tombstone, the town comes alive (and then, mmmm, dead) with cowboys, floozies, sherrifs, docs, and noisy with a bit of gunfire.


Above, the stage coach arrives in town, oh, look a floozie is coming to town, oh, what shall we do??

Not long after the stage rolled into town, a street fight broke out, starting to look like there is gonna be BIG trouble in the OK Corral later - -


Sure nuff, later in the corral Doc Holiday showed up, mmm, well, a bit, inebriated.


OO, OOO, sleeping it off in public, goodness Doc - -


Tempers started to flare, words were exchanged, and then, 30 seconds of gun fire - -


And, 3 lay mortally wounded - -


Doc and the Earp brothers.





* We enjoyed the recreation of the Shootout at the OK Corral.  It is just a bit hokey, but a lot history.  It was our opinion, that the actors this day were quite good.  Nita and I had to agree that the actor playing Wyatt Earp (second from left) was good, but the actor portraying Doc Holiday was outstanding.  He could really pull off a "2 step backwards drunken stumble"!

Next we will visit Boot Hill and - - - -

That looks like a lot of fun! We don't see anything like that here in New England. I'd love to rent an RV and go traveling out West with you!
