Today we got on the scooter and went on highway 89 to Jerome. Jerome is a ghost town. It used to be a thriving mining town of up to 10,000 people up until the 1950’s. Copper was the main ore but there was a gold mine or two as well. Today the main street is used for tourism with the shops full of restaurants and artisan shops. The one I found most interesting sold only kaleidoscopes.
We drove on a highway with 152 curves in 12 miles with an elevation change from 4,000 feet to 7,000 feet above sea level.
