Jul 10, 2008 - Jerome

Thursday July 10, 2008- We left the RV for our day trip to Cottonwood for Judy's lab test. The trip took only 1 hour on the freeway. Not much to see but cars and scrub brush. Once in Cottonwood the GPS directed us to the office of Labcorp and we were finished in about 20 minutes. It was lunch time so we went to our favorite Mexican place, La Carreta. We found this place when we camped in Cottonwood with Judy and Jerry and Charlie and Russ earlier this year. Really good food. The road to Jerome starts winding up 89A right out of Clarkdale...

May 21, 2008 - Jerome, AZ

We drove up to Jerome today and toured the town. It is an old mining town turned Ghost, and then was taken over by the Hippies in the 60's and rebuilt by them as they moved into the abandon buildings. We had lunch at The Haunted Hamburger Restaurant, then walked around town which is full of art & craft stores. On the way back to Sedona we stopped off at a winery, Alcantera, (go figure) and tasted and bought a bottle to have later. We also tasted at the Jerome Winery and bought some there.

May 11, 2008 - Jerome State Historic Park

The same day we took in sights in Sedona & Red Rock State Park, we decided to drive through the town of Cottonwood & then up to Jerome. We really didn't spend any time in Cottonwood.....except to grab a bite to eat on our way back from Jerome. Jerome information taken from pamphlet: Jerome's modern history began in 1876 when three prospectors staked claims on rich copper deposits. They sold out to a group of men who formed the United Verde Copper Company in 1883. The new mining camp was named for Eugene Jerome, one of the mine's investors...

Feb 16, 2008 - Exploring Jerome and the Camp Verde area

February 16, 2008 Today our plan is to visit Jerome and meet Sharon and Chandler for lunch there. I started by getting out for a good walk in the morning to see better the park we drove into last night in the dark. It was a foggy morning. Distant Drums is a modern facility in the mode of other new, near the Interstate parks with concrete slabs, graveled paths, lights on every space, and good hookups. Not many trees though. They did make a good effort to landscape the entrance and make it attractive. Our space was big enough and it was easy...

Oct 11, 2007 - Jerome and my Junior Ranger Badge

We took a trip to Jerome, AZ today. We ate lunch in Cottonwood,AZ and then went into Jerome to see the Davis Mansion there. I learned a lot about the early days of Silver mining in Jerome. They turned the Mansion into a State Park, so they have a Junior Ranger program. I had to fill out a form that asked questions about the Mansion, the Davis family, and the history of the Silver mines. Then there was a movie to watch about the history of the town of Jerome. I watched the movie and then went to do my oath. This is my first State Park...

August 24 Jerome, Part Deaux Today started out a day of cleaning and sorting...it ended up with another trip to Jerome! John and I started talking about the city and the mine and the next thing you know....Bob's your uncle, there we are . The mine tour was closed in preparation for a big music fest to be held there tomorrow. We thought we might stay over and attend but after talking to some of the local shop owners and learning that it was mostly attended and geared to the young people of the area and tended to get kinda rowdy we decided it...
