Field Trip to Old Tucson


Yesterday I helped chaperone Logan’s 6th grade field trip. We spent the morning at Old Tucson! Many famous old western movies were filmed there. It was the site for over 300 film and television projects since 1939. It definitely felt like walking onto a western movie set…so cool! Our school was invited to participate in Ted Walker Youth Day, where 3,000 4th-6th graders were invited to spend the day (for FREE) touring the the park. They even included a FREE hot dog lunch for all of the kids and chaperones. It was there way of giving back to the community and giving children an opportunity they may not have otherwise. I was in charge of 10 kids and we had a blast. They were good sports and let me take a few pictures. We rode the train through the park, toured Iron Door Haunted Mine, watched an old fashioned gun fight complete with explosions, enjoyed ice cream from Golden Gate Creamery, and finished off with a ride on the old fashioned carousel. It was just fun walking around the park and feeling like you were part of an old western!
