Jerome and Camping with Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Ron

IMG_2159We were excited to head north to Cottonwood to meet my Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Ron.  They traveled from Redding California to meet us here.  Marcus and Caroline were happy we could camp right next to them.  It was a bit chilly, but we made the most of it.  IMG_5068

Marc and Ron had a chance to talk about campers and trucks and the kids had fun with their two cats and dog, Polly.  We played games and just enjoyed each others company.  They love to travel and are really an inspiration to us.

Of course we took the dogs for a walk in the sunshine.

Cali had fun just walking barefoot in the grass.

It is fun to tour with someone else and get suggestions of places to visit.  I am really not sure if we would have visited Jerome, but Ron and Jeanne suggested it.  Well it was one of the best ideas.  In this small hillside town rich copper deposits were discovered.  When copper production was at its highest, it was home to 15,000 people.  Its mining days ended in 1953 and the town’s population dropped to 500.  We watched a film on the history of Jerome.  Marcus and Cali especially liked the model of the town showing all of the mines underneath.  There are about 100 miles of mines beneath the city.  We learned what life was like for a miner and how mineral are extracted.IMG_5072

After we left Jerome, we drove to Sedona.  They treated us to lunch at Oaxaca (a restaurant where Aunt Bob knows the owner.)  We had a delicious lunch!  We would highly recommend it!IMG_5073
