I spent last night in Jerome, Arizona. This is a mining town that in its heyday (100 years ago) was home to 15,000 people. Today the 500 inhabitants live mostly off tourists and only a few of those spend the night. The drive to the Grand Canyon where I am tonight was quite spectacular with deep red rock canyons, high mountain passes (2,300m), a high valley framed by snow covered mountains and then of course the views of the Grand Canyon. I walked along the rim a little and a bit down, but nothing too strenuous. The weather is very pleasant with lots of sunshine and cool nights. Now it’s off to see the sunset.
