Beautiful day in Jerome, AZ - not a ghost in sight

This was a rare Sunday for my husband and I... neither one of us had to work.  So we escaped north to Jerome, AZ.  I had seen an episode of Arizona Highways on TV that talked about Jerome and its reputation as a ghost town.  After our visit I found a website called Jerome Times to find out about the town's history.

We knew Jerome was at a higher elevation but we had no idea it was literally built into the side of a mountain.  We kept climbing and climbing. 

Once in Jerome, we were struck by how quaint the town was as well as how scary it would be to live in some of the cliff-hanger buildings.  It was a beautiful drive and a fun day.

The above picture is a view from one of the parking lots.  I think the next time we have visitors another trip to Jerome is in order.
