Jerome

When The Man and I first move to AZ we went on a lot of day-trips to visit the historical landmarks in the state. It has been a while since we have "hit the road."

Last weekend we mad a trip to Jerome.

The whole city is literally hanging off of a hillside. We loved seeing all the crazy architecture.
It really reminded me of Virginia City, NV.


Due to gravity some of the buildings have actually been pulled down the slope

Yeah, it all wasn't too stroller friendly. We would walk down the sidewalk then out of no where it would have a 2 foot drop.
Of course the streets could barely fit the driving and parked cars so it was a little dangerous.


This was taken on the way to Gold King mine. We saw enough junk on the way up the hill that we decided we didn't want to pay to see more. Evidently some others felt the same way as they turned around right before and after we did.

The House of Joy. Don't ask because I don't know. I wish I did. I didn't have the chance to go in although I really wanted to. Doesn't it look a little tempting?

My new lens capturing every one of Blondie's bright hairs in the sunlight. I love it!

In every town like Jerome there has to be a crazy VW van, right?

The perfect end to our beautiful day trip.

Ice cream!

I can't believe you didn't go in The House of Joy. Curiosity would have totally done me in. Now, even I want to know what's inside there. Love the ice cream photos.

Yeah- it looks a lot like Virginia City. What fun, I think we need a family day trip soon! Your new lens seems to be fantastic- can't wait to get one! Yes, it's true, I am a copy cat and have decided not to worry about it- I am just going to keep on copying cool things people that I admire- get and do!
