Jerome; Verde Canyon Railroad; Montezuma's Castle

Jerome - Jerome is the iconic image people think of when they hear the term Wild West. Founded in 1876, the town was named after Eugene Jerome, who never visited his namesake but was a major financier of the United Verde Copper Company. This former Boom Town, Ghost Town is now a jewel for the Arts and Crafts community. Located on the 5,200-foot-high Cleopatra Hill, Jerome's picturesque buildings, mining sites, and stately ruins provide rich materials for a variety of art forms. Verde Canyon Railroad - The Verde Canyon Railroad is called a "Train for All Seasons, " offering passengers a spellbinding experience regardless of the time of year. Traveling at only 12 miles per hour on a 40-mile round trip on the edge of the Mogollon Rim in Central Arizona, the train offers breathtaking views of wilderness, wildlife, waterfowl, unique rock formations and Sinagua Indian ruins. Montezuma's Castle - The Montezuma Castle Indian ruins, which were built by the Sinagua Indians in the 12th century and became a national monument in 1906, contain some of the best-preserved cliff dwellings in the United States. The upper ruin has twenty rooms high in an alcove in the cliff's wall; the lower ruin, at the cliff's base, has forty-five rooms. 07/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
