Jerome in the Fall

My brother and sister were here from out of town to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since we had a weekend together as a family, we decided to take a mini vacation up north. Both Zach and Alisa have not seen Arizona, outside of Phoenix. We decided to head somewhere close so we went to Jerome and then on to Sedona. Jerome is an old mining town and it use to have 15,000 residents, but now it's a sleepy town with mainly tourist sites and shops.
