Lunch in Jerome


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!

Oh my goodness, Mary! 'Just last night I wrote to a blogging friend re. our trip to Sedona this weekend, asking if he'd ever heard of the "Haunted Hamburger"!!! (One of my co-workers recently spoke highly of it.)
I've not been to Sedona in like 5 years and Jerome, never! Hopefully, we'll have an opportunity to check it out.
Love your pictures!

Hugs,
Myra

How wonderful that you had a charming day away from the office. It's a great restaurant. They have a chocolate cake that is out of this world that is called "The Tower". You must try it sometime.
