Tombstone. Tacky tourist but we've seen worse.

At 6:00am this morning, it was 24*. Way too cold. By sunrise the birds were all up & about.
Yesterday, the Volunteer told me about a good breakfast restaurant in Elfrida; the Roundup Cafe. We hadn't gone out for breakfast on this trip so off we went. Very good. Carol had a simple sausage & biscuit. I had a breakfast burrito.
We continued north to Tombstone. Others had told us it was basically a tacky tourist place and they were right. Tombstone, and other "old West" type places are very popular with foreign tourists, Germans in particular. They are fascinated by the American West of the 1800's. It was interesting in it's own way. Mostly a collection of stores & restaurants revolving around the Gunfight at OK Corral.

We ended the day at the Escapee Saguaro SKP Co-Op park in Benson. $17/night for full hookups plus cable TV. Carol doesn't enjoy camping out in the middle of nowhere all by ourselves as much as I, so we we're staying here until we head over to Tucson on Thursday to meet up with John & Marge. Some of this, some of that. It keeps us both happy.
