Adventure’s in Sight Seeing

All set up at Verde Valley Thousand Trails in site C 43... This is what we have just a few steps away from our camp site. I great little waterfall which is just a small stream off the Verde River. It’s very nice and quiet here.
Our first day out sight seeing we drove to Sedona then we went to Old Town  Cottonwood, along the way we got some great pictures of the colorful mountains.
Old Town Cottonwood was very small and most of the shops were closed. But still interesting.
Then it was off to Jerome… and some lunch at the Haunted Hamburger.
The restaurant was a small little house that had been converted from a boarding house for miners. We ordered the Haunted Burger and it was pretty good. We didn’t get to see anything ghostly, dangit… I was very disappointed of course.

While walking the town I got some really interesting pictures. The Post Office.

The whole town of Jerome seems to have been a Hot Bed for the ladies of the evening for these miners. Just Sayin' by everything I'm seeing and reading...

The ride up the side of that steep mountain was well worth the drive. At times it seemed as if we were headed straight up. Jerome is a really neat town. If your ever in the area it’s a must to visit. Just DO NOT take your rig!!! the roads are extremely narrow and there are many, many dangerous curves to tackle.
Next on the list was the ghost town of Jerome. DSCN0532

Well that’s all for today kids until next time, Happy Trails and Safe Travels.

Highway Adventures

Leaving New Mexico today and crossing over into Arizona. Our first stop along the way for a 1 night stay, is in Tucson Arizona at a small, yet nice and friendly RV park.
Whispering Palms RV Park
3445 N Romero Dr
Tucson AZ
Here we met a very nice couple from Alaska, Peggy and Phil. On their coach and tow vehicle they had personalized plates. The coach has “Home 4 2” and the tow vehicle has “I B Toad” I would love to do this to our coach. So cute.
Back on the road and headed to Verde Valley in Cottonwood Arizona and the scenery is incredible. The mountains and the rock formations are so wonderful.

Yea… we have reached our first, of many destinations, Thousand Trails Verde Valley in Cottonwood AZ. We get all set up and we really need to find a grocery store to get some bread and milk. Well… we ask and guess what? There is a super Walmart 4.5 miles up the road. Yep, off we go…
While there I find a great little red kitchen aid type mixer It's small and RV friendly…
Until next time, Happy Trails and Safe Travels…
