Today we took the drive down to Benson. Benson is about 40 miles south of Tucson and the home of the Kartchner Caverns. We have been there about 4 years ago and liked it so much we just wanted to show our friends.
Since these caverns are living caverns, that’s to say they are still wet, dripping and developing, the scientists use it for research so they are constantly discovering new things about it. We learned things that were unknown 4 years ago when we were there last.
From the Caverns in Benson we traveled another 30 miles down to Tombstone.
You may have heard of Tombstone from some of the western movies. This is where legendary men like Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, Bat Masterson, and Johnny Ringo walked the streets back in he 1800s.
Much of the town has been rebuilt but a lot of it is original right down to the buildings paint and boardwalks.
Not sure what is in store for tomorrow since rain is in the forcast.
