Regulators!!! .... Saddle Up

William Henry McCarty
William Antrim
William H. Bonney

Born on NYC's Lower East Side...

... killed in New Mexico.

After loving the movie Young Guns, how could I not stop in Fort Sumner, New Mexico to check out this spot? Seriously... how could i NOT?! Actually, yeah, I probably could've skipped it but eh, why not stop in! And I did!!

It's such a small collection of photos I have from my travels... but these three survived. Not sure what year this was, early 90's for sure, on one of my cross-country Grateful Dead journeys.
Emilio Estevez starred at Billy The Kid in Young Guns.  Shot down by Pat Garrett and Bob Dylan did the music for another Billy The Kid movie.  That jerkwad Gore Vidal wrote a book about Billy and so did Larry McMurtry.

Nice! I have similar pics (different town, same sort of theme: Tombstone, AZ) from my cross country Phish journey. :)

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
