Rawhide, Arizona

I’ve gotten super behind on these Flashback Friday posts but the last time I wrote one I promised a Rawhide post next so here we go.

Rawhide is a western town and steakhouse in Chandler, Arizona which is right by Phoenix. We went here back in March of 2010. I was just taking a look at the website and it seems that there are a couple of different things but you can see how it was when we went. I have a lot of blurry pictures so I’ll try to pick out the best.

This is over the entrance to Rawhide. I took it when we left so it was dark and there were these 2 bright lights right next to the sign so this didn't come out well but I figured I should use it anyways.

We’ll start off with a few views of the town and as with any good western town there was a general store.

The first thing we did was ride on the train and then ride on the stagecoach. Looking at the website I don’t think they have the train anymore and the stagecoach ride looks different.

Here are the horses that pulled the stagecoach. According to the website, the stagecoach is now pulled by mules.

After that Connor rode on some of the little rides while JT watched. Then we went to go eat in the steakhouse.

Connor had one of his favorite foods- ribs. He also got a sheriff's badge. I don't remember what I ate; I'm sure it was steak. I do remember that it was good though.

They also had a band playing in the steakhouse.

Once we were finished with dinner Connor rode on a donkey and attempted to toast to marshmallows and rope hay bale cattle.
