Zeb and Eider Duck in Glenwood Springs, Colorado

After Rifle, Colorado, we got back on I-70 returning to Denver.   We stopped at Glenwood Springs, Colorado.   You might remember that Doc Holliday was with the three Earp Brothers during the shoot out at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona.   Shortly after the shoot out in Arizona, Doc Holliday moved to Glenwood Springs, Colorado.   That was a great place for treatment if you had consumption, or tuberculosis at that time.   We went to Doc Holliday’s saloon.

The caption says Wyatt Earp as he appeared in 1926.   The Budweiser Beer Wagon at KD Hughes Wholesale Liquor at 824 Grand Avenue, here in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, is a favorite of ours.

The saloon is great and so are the food and beverages.   We think you would like this place and hope you will stop in when you are in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Hope you visit Doc Holliday's Saloon
