Arizona's wild west

Yep, been traveling out of state again. This time was a quick trip to southern Arizona for a look at the wild west history there.

Instead of a giant post of photos, I put together a slide show that includes the Goldfield ghost town, Superstition Mountains, Apacheland Movie Ranch, Tombstone's Territorial Courthouse, Birdcage Theatre, the OK Corral and Boothill, the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, Old Tucson Movie Studios and Saguaro National Park.



It was a very fun trip with great weather, but it's time to get back to work on South Dakota things like the Black Hills Photo Shootout.

Wow, what a stunning slideshow. That's a super way to showcase your photos. The music is also fabulous. If I'm ever in that part of the country I will have to check out those locations.

Your talents really shine through!

Thanks Larry, there really is some fun stuff to shoot down there, especially if you like the Old West at all.

OMG--you took a photo of my Grandson at Old Tucson--it's the black and white and he's the cowboy in leather vest, gloves, etc. and a stagecoach is to the left. He just started there a few weeks ago and I've been begging for some photos of him. This is the first one I've seen. I live in KY and would like to know if it's possible to get a copy of that photo from you. Loved the music and all the other photos are wonderful as well--but that ONE is very special. I know your photos are yours but would love it if you could share please. Thanks.

Wow, what a coincidence that you found this. Email me at chadsdphoto(at symbol)gmail.com.

By the way, your grandson was very friendly and completely understood what I was trying to get, so helped me out a lot in making that picture.
