I haven't touched this photo at all. This was the beginning of the days burn.
To get there, you drive from an elevation of 3100 ft up a winding road to 5500 ft. Hubby hates heights, going up or down. I should have offered to drive, I guess, but he probably wouldn’t have liked it any better if I had. If you continue up and over the mountain, winding your way through 158 curves, you will come to Prescott. Talk about a wild ride!
Once in town, it’s an uphill zigzag of funky little shops, an artisans wonderland. Loads of places to eat & explore. In it’s heyday the population was about 15,000 people (I'll have to verify that), all involved with the mine. Today, there are about 450 full time residents.
Here are some photos we took today…
Many of the places we took photos of were abandoned buildings that probably have gone through one of the many fires.
I'll post more pictures tomorrow with some history of Jerome, AZ.
