While visiting the area south-east of Tucson, we decided to stay the week and enjoy some history of the old west.
Today was a trip to Mescal Movie set, just north of Benson, AZ. They made movies here such as Tombstone, Rawhide, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Outlaw Josey Wales, How the West was Won, Little House on the Prairie, The Gambler, Desperado, Billy the Kid, Maverick, Buffalo Soldiers, Magnificent Seven, and many many more..
We arrived at the 3pm show, and because it was cold and windy, we had the tour to ourselves. It was pretty cool to see the real-life sets of movies we'd seen, and to see how things look a lot nicer in the movies! :-)
