Tombstone, AZ

Just back from a fortnight in Arizona, where we were visiting #1 daughter on exchange at UofA in Tucson. We took in Flagstaff, Williams, the Grand Canyon and Sedona as well as sights in and around Tucson itself.

A personal favourite was the Boothill Graveyard on the outskirts of Tombstone. It seems to have operated only for a very few years - and most of the occupants apparently died a sudden death - shot or hanged in the main (one is specifically shown as 'died of natural causes').

George Johnson was more unlucky than most. I wonder how they found out their mistake?
