Jerome is a ghost town located in the Mingus Mountains in Arizona, 10 miles from our home. It is a mile-high city, just over 5,000 ft. high and it’s pretty at night when we see the lights in the distance. We refer to it as “the twinkling city in the sky”. Jerome was popular in its day as a mining town. My husband and I took the afternoon off and enjoyed walking around the town a few days ago.
We stopped for lunch at the Haunted Hamburger. It’s romantic to sit out on the outside deck and look out at the view of the Verde Valley.
I bought two flavors of fudge at one of the shops: Butter Pecan and Chocolate!
It was fun to get away from our routine and join the tourists!
