Serious climbing from Tucson to Tombstone!
For the first 28 miles, we climbed over 2000 feet coming out of Tucson. After that, we had downhill for long stretches with a serious tail-wind. It was fun! We could cruise at 20mph with very little effort for long periods. But then a nice little 1/2 mile 6-7% grade climb into Tombstone to remind us that we are still in the mountains.
A good day!
Here is a look back down a typical climb:

We got there just in time to see the re-enactment of the “Shoot Out at OK Corral.”
