Around the corner from Marcia's Soaps, Patti owns this piece of history from the late 1800's. She also has a pottery shop across the street. Interesting area to visit! Not far from Tombstone, AZ

3 different Ghost towns to visit and walk to your hearts content! Watch out for the Rattlesnakes. Don't step over things without looking first. God's country is found here.....

This is a dirt road. Watch for the cattle walking down the middle of it. Many opportunities for photos of the old houses and buildings. athat are spread out along the old road that lead to today.
