About Me

My photo
Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. About living in Italy, the Veneto area near Venice; in Indonesia, central Java. Why we love the southeast of the United States and moved back from Italy. Our love for gardening, the botanical way. Sharing with you our manifold treasures from exotic places and even offering several at Spectrenoir: http://ebay.to/2xI69uc, for others to enjoy. As well as high end silver items from Giovanni Raspini, Italy. I also do classes and consulting... too much to list here! Love to bring back some romance and quality to the daily life of others...

{1880s Rawhide, Arizona - Western Town}

Most of you might recall RAWHIDE, ←(click it) the CBS TV show that ran from 1959 till 1966 in which Rowdy Yates got played by Clint Eastwood and Gil Favor, the trail boss, played by Eric Fleming...←click it.
We both did visit Rawhide, Arizona in 1986 and in 1987 during the before mentioned SPAWN MATE SYMPOSIUM where my husband Pieter lectured.
Back to RAWHIDE ←(click it)... on our final day in Arizona!
This is husband Pieter in 1986 when we went for Steak Dinner to Rawhide, during the above mentioned Symposium.
That's me in 1986...
Yes, this is us after we left The Boulders in Carefree, where we ate lunch. It is 15:45 o'clock in the afternoon and still 109°F or 43°C but it is very pleasant, due to the low humidity!
Rawhide, at Wild Horse Pass is about 15 miles south of Phoenix airport's rental car return; so quite convenient!
Our nice weather is ending soon!
Beautiful Bronze Statues...
We arrived early for the 17:00 o'clock opening till 22:00 o'clock.
During weekends it opens at NOON!
Oh oh, they let me pass but threaten husband Pieter...
Those men look MEAN!
Pieter made it inside as well and here he stands in front of THE MOONSHINE ROOM...
This is how they did transport he BAD guys during the 1880s...
LOOK: This cannon featured in the motion picture WILD WILD WEST starring Will Smith...
There is even a real 1880s style blacksmith forge!
You can buy all kinds of gifts made with horse shoes and others.
Interesting to watch...
On their website you can read: Our authentic replica allows guests to experience the majestic Sonoran Desert the way early settlers did. Your ride, guided by a trained mule team, meanders through Sonoran Desert trails.
Here you see the mules, waiting for the first passengers...
Pieter is studying the breaks on such an old wagon from the 1880s...
Rawhide Electric Chair...
Having a conversation with a cowboy in front of Rawhide's Jail.
Interesting stories!
Well, if you had to spend the night in jail, this is what you got...
Not quite comparable with the room that is waiting for us that evening at +Hyatt Place Tempe/Phoenix Airport after we drop off our rental car!
The Sheriff is keeping a watchful eye on the jail corner!
Yep, this is how the doctor arrived with his horse or mule and all the necessary items in a wooden tool box.
To the left you see people entering the Steakhouse...
There even was a Mission and from here I say goodbye and thank you so much for joining us on our Arizona journey!
We flew home the next morning, on September 5.
Little did we know that on Monday, September 8, there would be severe flooding in the Phoenix area.
Flooding prompts Brewer to declare statewide emergency ←click to see why Governer Brewer had to declare this statewide emergency.
We felt so blessed for having had such great weather till the very end!

Rawhide Theme Song Lyrics
Title: "Rawhide"
Written By: "Ned Washington"
Performed By: "Frankie Laine"

Keep movin', movin', movin',
Though they're disapprovin',
Keep them doggies movin' Rawhide!

Don't try to understand 'em,
Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
Soon we'll be living high and wide.

My heart's calculatin'
My true love will be waitin',
Be waiting at the end of my ride.

Move 'em on, head 'em up,
Head 'em up, move 'em out,
Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!

Set 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide...

  1. yes, i watched some rawhide in reruns. :) love the set-up. you were having fun with the cowboys. :)

    1. Dearest Theresa,
      Glad that you too remember those Rawhide reruns. This town is a lot of fun; too bad I had to get back to the airport, returning the rental car and checking into our hotel. But a very nice ending of our Arizona vacation.

  2. Dearest Mariette,
    what a great area ...you have seen so many wonderful things on this trip!
    Happy week to you,
    Love and hugs

    1. Dearest Claudia,
      O it sure was a great 1880s town! It was as said before, a trip above expectation. This was also a perfect ending before flying back to Georgia.
      Happy week's ending to you as well.

  3. Gave trip hebben jullie gemaakt...of zijn jullie aan het maken...Rawhide....mijn favoriete tv serie in mijn jongere jaren...ik vond dat mooier dan Bonanza.....dat stukje Amerika zou ik ook nog wel eens willen zien, lijkt me erg mooi, of is het daar nu ook allemaal anno 2014 met hier en daar een openlucht museum ?

    1. Beste Marian,
      Nee hoor, dat wàs, je kon het zien op de foto met e temperatuur waarbij staat Thursday, September 4th. Ja, Rawhide vond ik ècht goed en heb er mooie herinneringen aan.
      Je kunt van mijn vorige blogposts, via links onderaan, de andere delen van Arizona zien. Het heeft zijn heel eigen South West style en we hebben echt genoten! We troffen het ook zó met het weer, de hele periode van zeven dagen.
      Dit plaatsje is echt mooi authentiek opgezet en je moet er eigenlijk langer kunnen zijn, het beste tijdens het weekend. Wij moesten de huurauto terugbrengen en inchecken in ons hotel... Volgende dag terugvlucht. Toch was het leuk na 27 jaar om hier nog eens te zijn. Toen aten we in het steakhouse met de hele delegatie van het symposium waar Pieter spreker was in 1986 en in 1987. Wij gaan er zeker nog terug om de Sedona omgeving nog eens uitgebreid te bekijken!

  4. Liebe Mariette,

    es ist immer wieder eine Freude, dich zu begleiten.
    Sonnige Grüße

    1. Liebe Elisabeth,
      Ja gerne nehme ich euch alle mit auf Reisen! So könnt ihr gemütlich von daheim mit geniessen.
      Ganz liebe Grüsse, es ist nicht mehr sonnig und es wird kälter.

  5. Een nostalgische tour, wie kent Rawhide niet. Ik zat altijd aan de buis gekluisterd en dat liedje blijft je altijd bij. Ik hoor het meteen weer. Leuk om te zien.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja, daarvoor zat ik ook aan de buis gekluisterd en Frankie Lane zingt dat ook erg goed. Had de link er ook bij aangehecht om het nog eens te kunnen horen.
      We hebben er zeker van genoten!

  6. I love those bronze statues, they look great. I'm glad you had a wonderful time.
    Hugs Kay

    1. Dearest Kay,
      Some talented artist created those bronze statues, they are perfect at the entrance to Rawhide Western Town.

  7. Che belle immagini Mariette!Penso emozionanti!Baci,Rosetta

    1. Cara Rosetta,
      Grazie e claro era molto emozionante per essere lì.

  8. Dear Mariette,gorgeous pictures from the Wild West!!I love them!!
    Your trip was very interesting!I would love to visit this area one day!
    Have a lovely day!Hugs!

    1. Dearest Dimi,
      That was a perfect last day event before flying home from the South West! We enjoyed it very much.
      That area would be a perfect vacation destination; Arizona has so much to offer!
      Hugs and lovely evening.

  9. I've never watched Rawhide, but must be good show especially as Clint Eastwood is in it :-)
    That looks such a fun place to visit. I love seeing all the exhibits! Jail room looks very small and no privacy. Better not to do bad things, haha. Watching blacksmith at work must be very interesting. I enjoy watching the process of making things like that.

    Happy Thursday!

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Oh yes, Rawhide was a great show with several good actors like Clint Eastwood and Eric Fleming. Several of those actors are no longer around...
      In the 80s we had even more fun as they had chicken, ducks, geese and rabbits playing an instrument for inserting $ 0.25 that would trigger some feed for them... Hilarious but that is no longer allowed. It proved also that animals are super smart! They earned their living in a fun way. There also were goats roaming freely, one was tugging at my paper bag in which I held a Warrent that we had printed for my youngest brother. Goats eat paper! Both years in 1986 and in 1987 we had dinner at the steakhouse with the entire delegation and we went by bus. Fond memories all together and this was super for going back one more time...

  10. Oh my, I was there 22 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it was in the evening and we enjoyed a fantastic show!! What a experience! And a lovely end to your visit, dear Mariette!
    Thank you so much for sharing your holidays in Arizona!!!! Some day, I will manage to scan my old photos and write a post on my trip to Phoenix as well.
    Many many hugs!!!

    1. Dearest Marie-Anne,
      We too were there by bus with the entire delegation from the Symposium, for an evening show and dinner. That was in 1986 and 1987 and we just wanted to go back again.
      Looking forward to your scanned photos and story. Fond memories for all of us!

  11. Dear Mariette,
    Now I have the theme song to Rawhide playing in my head! Yes, I remember this television series as a child when Westerns were a very popular genre during that time. I think that is when I fell in love with Clint Eastwood - oh, he was a handsome man! (And still is <3) Very interesting to see all the old wagons and way of life back then. I can't imagine waiting for a Dr. to come in his horse and buggy...It looks like you and Pieter had a very good time, back in 1986 and also on this journey. You came home just in time, too! Those cowboys look very fun to flirt with, too! :)
    Wishing you a lovely week xo

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Oh, we loved Rawhide in 1986, 1987 and in 2014! Even though we did not have time for dinner this time around... We really had a super time and those cowboys gave their very best performance once we entered town!
      Great that you too have such fond memories of Rawhide and remember the theme song so well!

  12. Liebe Mariette,

    was für ein tolles Erlebnis...im Wilden Westen!
    Es sind solche vergangenen Zeiten wie der "wilde Westen" die leider in dieser Form nur in den USA zu bestaunen sind.
    Hier in Europa gab es schona uch "wilde" Zeiten, aber in ganz anderer Form.
    Schön das ihr nach vielen Jahren später den Weg nochmals dahin gefunden habt.

    Liebe Grüessli

    1. Liebe Julia,
      Ja, deswegen war es so schön um in die Zeit von die TV Shows zurück zu gehen. Es war kein leichtes Leben damals, besonders für die Frauen war es hart.
      Wir fanden es super ja um nach sovielen Jahren nochmals zurück zu gehen.
      Liebe Grüsse,

  13. Dát is leuk! De muziek van de serie was ook leuk, pas nog gehoord.

    1. Beste Janny,
      Ja, de wereld van de TV shows die we in de jaren zestig bekeken... vol spanning. Het is heel interessant.

  14. Hi dear friend !!! Que lindo paseo a Arizona ,, es como retroceder al pasado ,,
    Que tenga un bendecido fin de semana

    1. Dearest Angélica,
      Indeed, this is a huge step back in time and we only can appreciate even more the luxury we have right now. Great Arizona trip.
      Wishing you a lovely weekend too.

  15. What a fascinating place to visit! And yes, I know by heart all the words to the Rawhide theme song. LOL Love the beautiful bronze statue. I'm also remembering, 'Rollin' rollin' rollin,' though the streams are swollen...' I think that comes in there somewhere. At least it's in my brain. :-)

    1. Dearest Judy,
      Thank you and oh, the joy of kind of reliving those times when we were watching the TV series... That theme song we will never forget! Great statue indeed, so fitting!

  16. Ciao Mariette, con queste foto hai portato anche noi in viaggio con te!
    A presto,

    1. Dearest Veronica,
      Well, that is double joy if we could travel all together, back in time and back to a favorite TV series...

  17. Dearest Mariette,
    when your husband Pieter lectured 1986 -1987 when you went for steek dinner to rawhide.
    Pieter's looking of the breaks on old wagon fom the 1880s.
    You look not sad in the jail because not thinking of you ....
    I enjoyed with the doctor horse in a wooden tool box another people entering the steakhouse.
    Your both has good memories!
    Hugs and love!

    1. Dearest Michiko,
      Yes, Pieter wanted to make sure that wagon would be safe for travel...
      Just imagine, having to live like that and the doctor with the horse charriot and only a wooden tool box... How rough those times must have been!
      We both have very fond memories.
      Hugs and love and happy weekend to you.

  18. Rawhide aired the year my husband was born and ended the year I was born. :) I used to watch reruns of it. Even my husband likes to see some of the old western shows. Looks like a very interesting day trip and convenient to the airport. :) Best wishes, Tammy

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Interesting and we even might have watched reruns, back in The Netherlands because we did not have TV until I was about 12 years old. But we sure loved to watch Rawhide!
      It is very convenient to the airport and also interesting. The best would be the weekend because on weekdays it opens up after 5:00 PM and there even are days it is closed.
      Sending you hugs,

  19. I never watched Rawhhide since we were in South Africa then much into our parrot breeding facility and watching TV very little!
    Thanks for sharing this with us, how interesting!
    I especially like the photo where you are sitting in front of Rawhide's Jail not looking at all like a cow-girl! LOL!!!
    And boy, is this jail minimal!!
    The doctor's carriage is incredible, I wonder how it didn't collapse, so light it looks!!
    I had much fun with you brilliant photos Mariette and the parallel with the 1886 and the today pictures in front the large carriage is quite something!
    Hugs from France!

    1. Dearest Noushka,
      Thank you for your interesting comment here. Too bad you missed Rawhide, while living in South Africa and having no time on hand...
      Oh, when it is 43°C in the afternoon, I'd rather be in shorts and sandals than boots etc. That's my winter outfit and I'm not so much into Western style at all.
      Looking at such a minimal jail from 1880 gives us a good peak into reality back than. Guess nobody had any luxury at that time...
      That doctor's carriage indeed looks very fragile... let's hope he did arrive most of the time!
      For us it was like going back in time to our previous visits in 1986 and 1987... nostalgia.
      Hugs to you and enjoy your Sunday afternoon.


Thanks for your visit and comment.
