When we last left you, we were in Tombstone, but had yet to visit the historic town. On our way to Bisbee, we ride our tandem on the very streets that Wyatt Earp used to ride his horse.
Well, it’s all downhill (almost 30 miles!) for the rest of today at least. We descend to Bisbee, a former copper mining town. The mines still remain, huge open pits that scar the landscape.

It’s our last night in John McCain’s home state. We are still waiting for the senator to call.
