And into Arizonia

Enough of Utah,  it was getting too cold so it was time to head south. Plus my "seasonal worker" position was over so we said our good byes to Michael and Christi. They are great people, managing a great park and if you are ever there tell them we said HI.  Also if you get the chance, stay and see Michaels' show, it is very entertaining.

We landed in Camp Verde AZ which is pretty close to Sedona AZ, Red Rock State Park and Jerome AZ.

Cathedral Rock

We did a nice hike at Red Rock State Park and had some nice views of Cathedral Rock.

We also walked over this bridge, never miss an opportunity to photo railings and bridges.

On our way back to Camp Verde we stopped at this chapel that had been built out of the rocks. Chapel of the Holy Cross was built in 1956 and won many awards from the AIA.

and looking up another stair
Jerome AZ is now a partial ghost town. It was once the 4th largest city in AZ and was a copper mining camp. It is built on the side of the mountain and the streets zig zag back and forth as you travel up the mountain and thru the city. It is now an artist community with many art filled shops. If you "click" the photo it will enlarge and you can see the OPEN sign for this Glass Blowing Shop. I now know what "store front" means.

We have since moved on to Mesa AZ. Here there are many other members of the Escapee RV Club and it is good to see them and spend time together.  Everybody has a year full of travel stories to swap with each other. We were all together last Jan in Quartzite AZ at our graduation. And more on all of the festivities in future posts.
