Tuzigoot, Jerome and Politics

14 Sep

After an amazingly beautiful switchback drive along Oak Creek Canyon and up to the lookout, we set off for Jerome via Tuzigoot, an ancient, hill-top, 100 room Pueblo site of the Sinagua people, another amazing bit of history.




In Jerome we met up with one of our nephews who is an artist in glass – and what beautiful pieces he makes, many small but also this remarkable human. We bought one of his little bowls which is all wrapped up for safe travelling so I will show you when we get home.

After lunch together, we strolled about this old mining town, wondering if any Cornish miners had made it this far. Jerome, like Sedona, needs a post of its own soon but on the way out I caught this treasure which, whatever your politics, I hope will make you smile!

    Glad you made it to Toozigoot. Your nephew is very talented! Can’t wait to see the bowl you bought.
