Jerome is an old copper mining town at about 5000 feet elevation. Tourism seems to be the main industry now. We don't usually like very touristy places but we really enjoyed this place and plan to return someday.
It was feeding time for Laurie but we were a little early for lunch. We found "The Mine", a restaurant that serves breakfast. Highly recommended.
After Jerome we made a quick stop at Montezma's Well and then back to Phoenix.
What is 40 to Phoenix ?
Phoenix Arizona is the national headquarters of the GWRRA and many riders turn around at that point and return home. Hence the name "40 to Phoenix".
My goal is to write a blog about each day. I also have a phone app that updates my location on a map on this website every 10 minutes or so. Click
