Helldorado Town

Helldorado Town is a tourist trap in Tombstone, Arizona. The teatrical shoot-outs are fun for the kids, but for most grown-ups, this is a lot less interesting than the real history of the Wild West town of Tombstone.

Mexican border in Nogales

Nogales is a divided city, partly in Mexico, partly in Arizona. This photo was taken standing on a bridge on the American side, but most of what you see is the Mexican side of the city. The border fence can be seen on the left side of the picture. And yes, that is a strip club.

A Bunch of Bisbee Buildings

Bisbee might just bee the prettiest little town in Arizona. This picture is actually of the outskirts of Bisbee. I love the Victorian houses!

Tubac Wall

Tubac, Arizona is a little town full of artists these days. It was once the site of the Spanish Presidio (HQ/fortress), but this was moved to Tucson after too many Apache raids.

Casa Grande

This is the Casa Grande - in Coolidge, AZ - a structure built by the Hohokam Indians, probably in the 1300s. It was abandoned by the mid-1400s as the Hohokam culture collapsed, no one really knows why.
FYI, the roof-cover is a new addition.:)
