We went on a little adventure on the 4th of July to Bisbee, AZ. I’ve posted about Bisbee before, here, here and here. It’s a favorite place of ours. It’s just under a 2 hour drive and it is 20 degrees cooler, which is reason enough for me. It’s also quirky, artsy, colorful and just all around cool place to hang out.
First we went to the coaster races down main street. An exciting beginning for the boys.
We had already done main street with all it’s shops and galleries, so this time we decided to freestyle our own stair climbing, hiking, photographing adventure. There are tons of stairways that course through the hillsides and neighborhoods of Bisbee. The pathways once served as mule tracks for Bisbee’s copper mining past and then were converted to walkways and stairways.
We found lots of old little buildings, a bathtub without a home and an old bottle post.
Lots of old brick, brightly colored homes and interesting street art.
I really love these copper metal sculptures and gate with their green patina.
We stumbled on this Buddhist shrine cave which was a nice surprise.
A dead end found us at this crazy wall with lots of tile pieces, ceramic bits and other interesting items.
A very kind, older gentleman invited us onto his property so he could show off his beautiful koi pond and mermaid sculptures.
I must have taken over 500 pictures, but these are my favorites from the weekend.
I hope you had a great weekend too!
