We had some summer fun and traveled to California. We saw Hollywood and Santa Monica. It was a great trip. Friends of ours were visiting for a 6flags trip and met up with us late in the trip. We had such a blast being tourists in LA. We saw Jim Henson's building, LA Ink, Capitol Records, and walked the stars. We also ventured into the celebrity neighborhoods. It's a very neat city with a lot to see and do. We saw just a little piece and will definitely be traveling back to see more in the future.
Nearby Adventures: A Day in Jerome
Jerome, Arizona was a fun little day trip I took. It was less than a 2 hour drive from where I live, yet I had never gone before. I hoped to get away from my usual weekend routine and the same-old activities. It was a spontaneous trip that amazed me with all the sites and history. The town was like being in another world. It was a lovely afternoon adventure that I never knew I could have while remaining so close to home.
Jerome is a tiny mining town over 100 years old, known for its steep location and ghostly buildings. The photo above is Cleopatra Hill (left) which overlooks the town. The jail that was once atop Cleopatra Hill, slid down to the bottom many years ago, prisoners and all. You can walk down and look into the remains. It was kind of creepy. There was a bed and writing on the walls from what was once a cell.
