Below are some of Rex Allen's costumes from his singing career. The silver mounted saddle is a parade saddle made in California for him.
During this quick trip we found the oldest continually operating store in Arizona where Kathy and I purchased some western wear on sale. It is the Wilcox Commercial, owned by only 3 families since 1880. All these attractions are on Railroad Ave. in Wilcox.
We will return to Wilcox in the next several weeks to see the approx. 30,000 Sandhill Cranes that winter here. Then we will go up to the Chiricahua National Monument in the Chiricahua Mountains south of Wilcox. This is also the location of the Cochise stronghold where he lived out his days. We’ll do a blog post when we go.
