I admit it, before stumbling upon the amazing SALOON photo (below) I’d never heard of the border town called Douglas, Arizona. But the more I read and saw about town the more I knew I had to get there some day.
Douglas is situated in Cochise County. Its history revolves around mining, ranching, and gunfighting. Cochise County was home to a bunch of historical heroes, rogues and wranglers such as Geronimo (the Geronimo Memorial, the site of his 1886 surrender is in Skeleton Canyon just outside Douglas), Cochise, Thornton Wilder, John Slaughter, Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holliday and their tales played out, sometimes violently, across the tapestry of the county's grasslands and deserts.
Gotta get to my namesake town some day. Some day.
