Yuma Territorial Prison
State Historical Park

During our several visits to Yuma and Los Algodones, Mexico (for dental tortures), we had never taken in Yuma’s most famous Attraction: The Yuma Territorial Prison State Park and Museum.  (Usually ‘cuz I’m already speeding northward faster than Butch Cassidy with 10 possees on his trail).

So imagine my surprise to discover that Yuma Territorial Prison isn’t a tacky tourist dive that I supposed it was, but a well persevered and interesting historical venue.

    fine material for visitors.

      Howdy ! Welcome. We’re doing our best. I have gotten better as I’ve gone along. Sometimes enthusiastically – sometimes discouraging. But still trying. Have a nice visit.

  3. This article will help the internet visitors for setting
    up new blog or even a blog from start to end.

      You know what … I’d love to do that. Might give it a try.
      I’m not confident about it though because I tried to learn Web Design in the past – had all the programs. Couldn’t do it.
      I learned a couple of things but really didn’t have whatever that takes. Easy for some people – not for me.
      Right now I’m considering copying all my stuff and going to another Blog service. Obviously the lack of support here at WordPress is a real game changer – When I can’t even find out something as simple as how to remove image frames – that’s pretty damning.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

      Interesting … ??? never seen that before.
      I’ll try to figure that out. Hope it isn’t happening to everybody.
      Thank you for your interest … and we had a heck of good time at Yuma and the Prison !
