As noted is the last posting, Jerome Arizona prides themselves on being a ghost town. Just outside of town is the King Gold Mine – in actually a quirky, but cool, tourist spot where you can pan for gold. Their real ‘gold’ however is in the huge collection of old rusty trucks!
A 3 day weekend of wanderings resulted in a number of topics for a posting, and a few random shots that weren’t enough for a single posting.
Jerome, Arizona – What was once a medium sized town for a large copper mine, the town went nearly extinct, but has returned to life as a tourist attractions as … a ghost town full of people.
Another mountain town is Superior – east of Phoenix.
Roosevelt Lake is located near the Tonto National Monument. The reservoir supplies water to Phoenix.
As a continuation of the Spring 2012 trip, I made a trip south from Flagstaff through Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona. From there my route took me up the mountains past Jerome before heading across the valley to Phoenix.
