Boot Hill / Tombstone, Arizona

We finally make it to Tombstone’s legendary Boot Hill. The resting place of Clanton’s, McLaury’s, assorted bad guys and ordinary folks – most of who probably died with their boots off – now immortalized at this famous location – though some are marked “Unknown”.

It’s not the only Boot Hill around – just the most famous. A place of graves and ghosts.

As cool and clear as an Arizona morning.

And quiet.

    Talk about full of ghosts. Did they whisper to you?

      Didn’t see a thing. But I’ve heard that there have been some some strange incidents here. Well .. it is a graveyard after all.

    You missed the tombstone of the poor sob who was hung by mistake—all in all I think the graveyard was the real highlight of our visit to Tombstone. Good history lesson on the whole place. >

      Your right .. or at least I didn’t get a pic of it. I’m guessing there were more than a couple of folks here that didn’t get a fair trial. or a trial at all.

    Les Moore may have the most famous marker in the West.

      I believe you’re probably correct on that one.
