Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itA wonderful cool morning but clear blue skies and the sun is warming us up very quickly , just like it does here in the southwest. At 7 am first walkabout was about 58f not bad in the sun and did a get a lap around the park.
|as the sun was rising so was the heat|
|these Agave's around the park,|
some about 8 ft tall
|pine trees too? for Christmas I guess|
|like this custom Trike behind us|
would be a fun ride
|our site 8 am clear blue skies, love the views|
The main reason we are here is to go to Big Nose Kate's for Lunch. But have to wander the streets and check out a few shops, chat with some cowboys and ladies of the night, just because. Pretend we are in a western movie (at least I do). All that is free fun.

|the wooden sidewalks are nice|

|gunslingers strolling the streets|
|and the famous Bird Cage Theatre|
we went through there one year
|like to listen to the stories they|
have to tell
|period buildings look nice|
Now just after 11 am we headed into Big Nose Kate's, for lunch and beat the lunch crowds. We enjoy the atmosphere as much if not more than the food which we love too.

Our goal after lunch was to check out a gunfight at the Gunfight Palace , now again we have seen quite a few at different places here in town and all can be fun entertainment. This one is a bit different as it is done in a saloon. as opposed to a gunfight on the street.
