    : I am going to try to submit a picture of one of the building in Canyon Diablo. If it doesn't work, they can be viewed at www.eschwege.de/wyatt-earp/ under Pictures 4 (first click on the American Flag)

    : Actually, it's about 3 miles north of the Two Guns exit over some pretty rough terrain, and you certainly can't see it from the interstate. You do need a 4x4 to get there, although I was there in a Pontiac sedan and I was afraid I was going to lose the oil pan!!
