Watch your back!

As I was taking pictures of the Lavender Pit Mine just south of Bisbee, Arizona yesterday, I noticed a man talking to Dick. He appeared out of nowhere and introduced himself as a Chiricahua Apache related to Geronimo who did art work and had some silver bracelets for sale. (Kind of like the Rolex guy with watches up his arm!) Dick's immune to that kind of salesmanship even with the provenance.

This huge pit is what is left after 380 million tons of copper ore were removed.

Although we were too late for the reenactment of the shootout at the OK Corral in Tombstone I did get a picture of one of the leading citizens:
It was really windy yesterday but it's calm today and sunny again. Wish you were here too!


  1. I'd like a silver bracelet from Geronimo's nephew. As long as it doesn't turn my arm green.

  2. Lol Lisa....what was he thinking?!
