In November 2009, during our 21-month cross-country journey, we arrived in a small Arizona town. We were eager to explore this well-known town of less than 1,500 residents. On that day, we booked a three--night stay at the Best Western Overlook in Tombstone, Arizona.

During that first visit, we strolled down Allen Street, walked around the historic district, took a stagecoach ride, got our picture taken with “Doc Holliday,” visited the historic courthouse and the well-known Boothill cemetery, had a sarsaparilla at Big Nose Kate’s Saloon and made friends with a personable waitress at the OK Café on East Allen street.

Travels with Two Sisters is a series of adventures in Arizona with Green Valley residents Marie “Midge” Lemay and Suzanne “Sue” Poirier. For more discoveries, check out their books: “One Mile at a Time,” “A Gypsy in Our Souls,” “Connecting Dots,” and their latest, “We Don’t Mind if You Come Along.”
