It's good to be back!

Well its always so much fun to be out exploring different
places, but it's also good to be home! I have a lot of catching
up to do, because of the remote area we were in we had no
Internet! Its is amazing how I miss it when I don't have it!
***
We spent a week in a little town called Tombstone in AZ.
Yes this is the same Tombstone the movie was made from.


On our journey out we stopped in the town of Wikieup
to get some coffee and stumbled into this little country
market. It was a lot of fun to look at all the graffiti on the
walls. This is the kind of stuff I love to find! CRAZY!



Of course there was no shortage of Cactus on our journey.
But we were pleased with all the wild flowers
this time of year.

Not far from Tombstone is the town of Bisbee! Lots of cute little

shops and we found this little Place call The Shady Dell.

If your ever in the area you should take a look or even rent one
of there little Vintage, Restored Trailers. So very very Cool.







Of course in the morning sitting drinking coffee in our campsite
there was never a shortage of these little guys. I must have
taken 50 pictures of these beautiful birds.




I had to take a picture of this sign. Somethings never change!


Some real beautiful sunsets here in the desert!


Well thanks for stopping by and taking a look
at my little journey out to the old west!
Hope you have a blessed Easter!
Linda

Hey Linda, I love all of your photos! Wow, the sunset is so pretty, you could blow that up & frame it, and the birds of course are beautiful. If only we had colorful birds like that here. That graffiti wall is too funny, why don't you try that in your craft room. LOL The trailers are so cool, I'm heading over to check out that site now. :)

Very nice pics! The 2 birds are #1 male House Finch and #2 young female Red Bellied Woodpecker. We have alot of those here. I am a huge bird wathcher. Even my son can tell you all the birds and if they are young or male and female. They just make my day watching them and hearing them sing. :)
