Wandering through Bisbee

Bisbee, Arizona is a product of copper mining. "Old Town Bisbee", the historic section of town that clings to the canyons near the big pit, is now home to artists, actors, ex- and current hippies, hikers, birders... all sorts of colorful and creative personalities who don't mind hiking Bisbee's famous stairways carrying their groceries and laundry. In this photo, you can see the edge of the pit mine, with a tiny bit of Bisbee peeking through the pass in the background. Right above the pit, on the far left of this photo, is one of my favorite stops, Queen Mine RV Park. It is a little tricky to get to, but has a great view of town, just a short walk down the hill.
This is the main street of old Bisbee, lined with galleries, restaurants, antique stores.
This fellow and his trio of pets is one of the many entertaining sights in Bisbee. Look closely, there is a mouse on the back of the cat, which is riding on the back of the dog.
