The Power Walk

Getting down to the final photos for my friend Barbara, aka Allie...The Power Walk? Huh?  The story behind the photo:  Just before our re-enactment group would do a show, Morgan, Wyatt, Virgil and Doc would gather together and say, "Shall we?" and go into their formation of what we would call, the "Power Walk". When they would do this, patrons would stop whatever they were doing and watch them walk by...many with cameras at the ready to capture the moment and would also follow the boys where they would be lead the onlookers straight to the next show.  Even though they would do this all the time, it was always great fun to watch.  I will never forget  the chills I felt when they did this same walk during the 125th Anniversay of the Gunfight at the OK Corral in Tombstone.  I watched as they came down the same street as the original Earps and Doc Holliday, at the exact same time (2:40 PM), when and approximately where the gunfight took place followed by the re-enacted shootout .  I would say that, that moment was the absolute height of the re-enactment group's events-of all time.  Lovely memories, indeed!  Thanks for taking a peek!
