Cherry, Arizona Continued






























I thought I'd share some more pictures of Cherry, Arizona, an old ghost mining town in the hills where no one knows it's there. There are some cemetery shots and a picture of the original old schoolhouse from long ago and the fire trucks (volunteer fire fighting). It's a charming place that I never would have heard of if family hadn't settled here. I thought you might enjoy some Arizona back country charm for the majority of you lucky folks who live where it's green and has seasons. This town actually does get seasons and snow. It's up fairly high over 3000 feet in elevation. Still desert, but with lots of pines and scrub brush and much much nicer temperatures.

    I think I'd take you to Miami, AZ, Jerome, Sedona and Bisbee. Miami cause that's town was the basis of my undead cowboy/vampire novella; Jerome because it's the most freaky haunted town atop of a mountain with old mines all around it; Sedona because it would heal you and Bisbee because it's freaky haunted but it also has some of the craziest weird people in the world--all trying to hide from the world--very unsettling.

  5. Hey Libby-Girl;
    I used to live in Scottsdale, went to high school there. Hated it, but then it tends to be where all the rich and pretentious live, mostly older, very superficial and that's a scene I cannot stand. I graduated early to get away from it. Some parts of Scottsdale are better--South Scottsdale is more part of the ASU campus area and more families and such, far North Scottsdale is more scenic and pleasant and wide open. If you are going to come and go in the cold months, "Snottsdale" (what I always called it) is a good place-the best restaurants, people watching, galleries, spas, resorts, golfing... It is very nice and beautiful, I just wasn't into the status thing in the heart of Scottsdale.
