I didn’t know there would be so much to see and do at Old Tucson Studios. Heat permitting, you could easily spend most of a day here.
Old Tucson is truly a monument to the dear Western Movies of yesteryear – where heroes were Heroes and rode off into the sunset …
A worthy time capsule of a different day.
Moving down Main Street …
Below: Another look at the Grand Palace Saloon … and just across the street is Big Jake’s – named after a John Wayne’s movie that was filmed here in 1971.
Looks like a guy could get a steak there …
I could almost hear the clink of Duke’s boots on the boardwalk …
Passing by McLintock Mercantile …

Here comes the stage … again.
Stagecoaches were often late. Holdups, hostile natives, bad roads, bad weather,
lame horses, breakdowns, etc. Not really a very romantic way to travel.
Rose heads over to the OK Corral Freight Depot
Suddenly a Tour comes by.
But Rose keeps on shootin’.
I watch from the safety (and shade) of the Ice Cream Parlour
Time for some campfire lore and tales by the chuckwagon.
I think I’m getting the hang of this cowboy thing.
