A few more notes on our trip.

As noted, we really liked the facilities at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood, especially the showers.  And one afternoon we drove up the road to check out the local town of Jerome--an old mining town that is still, barely, hanging on while slowly transforming itself into a tourist town. 

There is a museum in the old house of the mine's owner, and it had this lovely sign:

You gotta wonder what the machine did...

Jerome also has some amazing views that reached all the way to the distant red rocks of Sedona.

And there were some hiking trails in Cottonwood that we didn't explore, but looked like they could lead to some interesting adventures--including one trail that went all the way to Sedona.  And lagoons for bird watching as well.  We liked Cottonwood, and would go back there to explore more.

Oh--and the full album of photos from the whole trip is now up and available here: 

Lots of them.
