Bisbee Pt 2

March 20, 2016

 When I show people Bisbee for the first time I always take them up the Brewery Gulch and check out the colorful houses painted in purple, red, yellow and many other bright colors.  The road dead ends and there isn't a spot to turn around, so be careful.  The return is steep with about a 20% grade bordered by a 9ft drainage ditch.  I think Dale was a little uneasy sitting so close to the ditch. 

Gerry, Debbie & Dale went into the Copper Queen hotel to see what it looked like and thought the lobby was quite old.  The Copper Queen was constructed from 1898 to 1902 by the Phelps Dodge Corporation to serve as lodging for investors and dignitaries visiting its nearby copper mine.

The furnishings were in good shape and looked like they were from a different era.    

Bisbee is an artist's colony and there are numerous works of art throughout the town.  This is an example of art objects all over the town.

I'm not sure what the art below represents, but it was neat looking.

We ran across this old house for sale in Bisbee and Gerry was ready to buy it and fix it back up.  Anyone want to come in with us and help fix this one?

We had to leave Bisbee and start the long drive back to the RV park.  It was late when we got back and dinner at Hotrod's grill and bar sounded like a good idea.  Gerry saw how pretty the sunset was and managed to get a nice photo of the Houghton Rd bridge in the picture.

That was our day, how was yours?

  1. We missed that street. Next time. I don't understand most art but find it interesting.
