Babes Behind Bars

beAconvictIf you follow our adventures on Facebook then you know how much Jenn and I enjoy checking into prisons during our travels. And sometimes we even get to check one out. Bam!  These two babes got behind bars at Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park.

During its thirty-three years of operation the prison housed 3,069 prisoners, including 29 women. But on this particular day these 2 sassy lasses proved they were bad to the bone.

The local townspeople called the prison The Country Club on the Colorado River. The convicts referred to it as a hellhole.

Got my back against the wall
Caged but not conquered

You don’t have to be married to be stuck with the old ball and chain, if you tried to escape the prison and were caught you were blessed with one of those too.

Girl on the run! Jenn makes a break
for it.









The only way is up to escape







Foiled by the guard. It’s Jenn’s evil twin!

Not everyone made it out alive, in fact there are 104 prisoners buried in the cemetery grounds. Some say you can hear their ghosts at night still calling out for justice.

Back to the cell Sara goes.





Doomed to dwell in the Dark Cell.













Have the ladies learned their lesson?  We shall see… until next time… when they are released to the open road!
