We made an interesting stop along the way at an old ghost town called Jerome. Although it was a ghost town many years ago when the mine was no longer viable, it is now on the national historic registry. By the early 20th century it was the richest copper mine in the world until the depression. They mined over a billion dollars in copper in addition to many other minerals.(see pics) Eventually people began moving back and it is now a tourist destination
We had lunch at the Haunted Hamburger which had an incredible view.(elevation 6,000ft)
We continued on to Williams, stopping to take some pictures for you along the way.(see pic) We'll stay the night in Williams and in the morning board a train for the Grand Canyon. We are planning to stay one night at the Grand Canyon and heading back to the RV on Monday.
