Day 4 - Tucson to Tombstone to Las Cruces

This morning, depart Tucson for Tombstone, and an encounter with history that you can only find in “The Town Too Tough To Die.” Discover original buildings dating as far back as the late 1870s and catch a live gunfight. Walk the same streets that Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earp, and a host of other legendary men and women of the American West walked throughout the years; or visit Boothill Graveyard, the most famous cemetery in the West. Afterwards, continue to Las Cruces, New Mexico. With the majestic Organ Mountains to the east and the mighty Rio Grande to the west, Las Cruces, meaning “the crosses,” has a mysterious presence. Its rich history haunts it still with reminders of Billy the Kid, who was sentenced to death in the area, and Pancho Villa, who spent time here.

Santa Fe, founded on the ruins of an abandoned Indian village, is the oldest capital in the U.S. and remains one of the most picturesque cities in the state. Be sure to visit one of Santa Fe’s famous art galleries, art markets, or museums full of traditional and contemporary art, including works by their own Georgia O’Keeffe; or shop for authentic creations you just won’t find anywhere else.

Originally constructed in 1882, and in continuous operation for 131 years, the railroad’s vintage steam locomotives let you relive the sights and sounds of yesteryear as you travel alongside the Animas River, one of the last free-flowing rivers in the entire western U.S. This route boasts some of Colorado’s most striking canyon scenery and spectacular views. You’ll pass fertile farmlands, old stagecoach roads, old mining camps, and be in the shadow of peaks reaching over 14,000 feet. It won’t take you long to figure out this is much more than a train ride. (optional, fees apply)

Continuing west just past Cortez you’ll drive through the “four corners”, the only place in the U.S. where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. Further west is Kayenta, Arizona, gateway to Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. This great valley is framed by scenic clouds that cast shadows on the desert floor, and boasts sandstone masterpieces that tower to heights of 400 to 1,000 feet.

At the Arizona Nevada border, Hoover Dam makes for an awe-inspiring stop. Considered the largest single public works project in the history of the U.S. and an Arizona landmark, Hoover Dam is filled with history and offers a colossal view of the Colorado River and Lake Mead.
