What a great little corner of the world. Beautiful scenery, interesting architecture, colorful history--can't ask for more. We visited Tombstone in the morning today and checked into our RV park at noon in Bisbee--it was hellaciously windy today so we wanted to be off the road. Turns out we could walk to everything, so we had fun poking around the museum and shops all afternoon. Found a yummy Mexican lunch spot. I had corn tacos filled with citrus-ancho-marinated pork tenderloin, and Lisa had grilled shrimp in an avocado sauce. We decided to splurge a bit since we are heading into boondock land for the next week.
Update on Nick--he is loving his bland diet and seems to be feeling OK (he is playing), but now we've swung to the other extreme--nothing. It was Lisa's "on duty" night last night and she was up with him at 1:45 (a little something) and 5:30AM (nothing). We've had him out a bunch today, but nothing else in the productive department. A new worry. Appreciate any advice from other dog owners. We know he hates the whole desert vibe, so we're going to a forested CG in NM tomorrow just for him (!).
We couldn't get Mine Tour tix for today, so we're on deck for the 9AM tour tomorrow and then we'll head out to New Mexico, where we hope things aren't so crowded as they are in Arizona.
Here are the photos du jour:
The Copper Queen Hotel--this was quite a city back in the day. Around 1900, 20,000 people and quite the lovely buildings.
