Jerome Arizona - What an Interesting Place!

We took a trip to Jerome, Arizona this weekend to meet my Dad-in-law's cousin who he hasn't seen since the 70's. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is planning on visiting the Phoenix, Flagstaff or Sedona area (about 1.5 hour drive from Phoenix). It's an old mining community that till the not too distant past was a "ramshackled" ghost town. It's now a unique artist's haven with tons of gift shops, museums and restaurants. A really interesting town high on the hillside overlooking the desert. We drove up to the old ghost town where there is an antique car graveyard. It was an amazing place for photos. I could have taken hundreds. Here are the select few I thought were worth sharing.

This chicken was workin' it!!! He was hanging out below a beautiful antique car.

This car was full of great old signage. Had to show a few.
