Leaving Tombstone

Well, as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end and for us that means packing up the truck, closing the house down, and heading back to Los Angeles. It’s been a fun four days here but business is pressing back in LA we’ve got to get with it.

Today we arrived in town just in time for the Helldorado Parade and in contrast with past years, it was a long one- it seemed like just about every entity had a float or presentation entered in the parade. It was also nice to see that there were a lot of mounted units- it’s always fun to look at the horses, even if there were a few who clearly didn’t want to be there (from personal experience, we can tell you that sometimes riding a horse in a parade can be a tricky proposition). One of our most favorite groups to watch are the Shriners in their miniature cars:

They really tore it up, zipping around in circles and figure eight patterns as they made their way down Allen Street.

And then there was the Arizona Rangers:

Finally, here’s another shot of Karin on Allen Street just after the parade:

After the parade, we retired for a couple of drinks:


It was an excellent end to an excellent weekend and we look forward to returning. In the meantime, it’s back to LA and on to more adventures in design. 🙂
