Day Trip to Jerome

Hwa. 89a from RV Park to Jerome.

Hwy. 89a through Oak Creek Canyon.

Red Rock Loop Road.

Hwy. 89a through Jerome and on to Prescott.

The sun started out shining this day so we took hwy. 89A south through Oak Creek Canyon, into Sedona, then on to Jerome. Oak Creek Canyon is a beautiful drive with several campgrounds, Sedona is a tourist trap, and Jerome is an old mining town built on the side of the mountain (straight up and down) west of Cottonwood. We haven't been down this road since 1969 while on a fishing trip to the White Mountains. Hwy. 89a goes on to Prescott after going through Jerome. Great ride with sun most of the day, on the way back we stopped to watch a heard of elk along side the road then it started raining when we got back into Flagstaff.
