Cottonwood & Jerome Arizona

Our first stop for our 2016 travels was the thousand trails RV park in Cottonwood, AZ.  We got settled and then started exploring the area. This was also our first stop in 2015, so I will include pictures from both times.

The downtown area of Cottonwood is really cute, there are lots of good restaurants and breweries.

We discovered a really unique mining town called Jerome. It is “America’s Most Vertical City” and “Largest Ghost Town in America”. This is one of my favorite things to photograph, old buildings with such history. We actually visited two times as there was so much to see and photograph






 The sliding jail

The area called the Husband’s alley was the red light district.

There is a really neat hotel called the Jerome Grand Hotel.

    Craig and I took a trip to Jerome in about 2001. It is such a fascinating place. We really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it again through your pictures. Love your photographs!

      Thank you Lori. We had such fun. When we went this year it was a lot less crowded which made it nice. We miss you.

    You have such an eye for really spectacular photos, Kathleen! I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again because I really mean it, your photos make me want to go to these obscure places that I would never normally want to go to!!!
