Ruins of Two Guns.

Two Guns

We are so glad that we made our Route 66 trip in 2004, 11 short years ago, and were able to get photos of many places [including Two Guns] before they fell into absolute ruin.

The ironic thing about Two-Guns-in-ruin is that it was built on the ruins of an even older attraction: Canyon Diablo. Is the property cursed?

I love old ruins. I went with my 4x5 camera but the sun wasn't in the right spot for shooting. It was cool to see the different buildings that once were. I didn't go in any of the wooden structures. There are some old paintings visible as well.

Seems most things at the site face sun-hostile north, towards the highway.

Looks like the remains of an old circus/zoo thing. Many of the buildings are just rubble, and there are still a few painted signs on some of the walls that are left standing. Fun place for the kids to explore.

Two guns is alive. With history, mystery and still beauty. I was very enthralled with this site and spent much time. There are several areas with large ruins standing. I went over the concrete bridge with no trepidation. There is easy access if you weave around but I do have a jeep. I also explored on foot, climbing spiral stairs to an open window with a view. The wood slats down to the cave do not look safe or passable though. The building marked KOA is abandoned as everything else. I've seen many ruins with much less, so these were impressive.
