Exploring the ghost town trai

I was excited to learn about the historic mining towns close to Tombstone! So I drove all the way up Reddington Rd towards Tombstone to check out Gleeson. This mining town was known for the Turquoise. It has remains of a hospital and a few other buildings. Then we have another mining town called Pearce, named after a miner from Tombstone by the name, Jimmie Pearce. He went exploring and found gold on the side of a hill and became the owner of his own mining town. Pearce had a post office from 1896, a school, jail and an old store. Some people say Pearce is haunted!So if your into Paranormal activity, you may want to investigate. Also, Courtland is around the corner. I thought it was a great day trip and always find western history fascinating! Here are all the remnants of the old west, a great piece of history!The huge tree is said to have been where they hanged criminals on. Unfortunately, they had a locked gate for Courtland, and the rest is pretty much historic buildings falling apart, but it was a good experience!

A trip to Pena Blanca lake and Ruby ghost town!

I always heard stories about the ghost town Ruby but have never been, so while my hubby was away for business, I decided to take the opportunity to go exploring the territory! Exploring is my passion and sharing new experiences is also something I truly love! I always thought when it comes to mining, it is just gold, silver and copper Or Turquoise, which I love! Or Rubies, Get it Ruby, rubies! Lol. But Ruby had lead and zinc! And I never knew that some people were murdered at the general store by Mexican bandits passing through on horse! Unfortunately, it was a very wet day and found Ruby closed! But the road trip all the way through to Lake Pena Blanca was awesome! I managed to take a ton of pictures.
