Sept 02 - Jerome

Day off today.  Took the wild road from Prescott to Jerome.  This road, Hwy 89A, through the mountains has something like 200 turns. 

Some of the sights in Jerome. It was a major copper mining town about 100 years ago, turned into a ghost town, now revitalized .

In the museum, some ore samples

Sept 09 - Watson Lake

A few miles out of town is Watson Lake. Curious rock formations. There is also a large campground associated with the lake, and some swimming holes, picnic areas, etc so it is well used..  We went for a delightful walk on a trail around the lake.
