Restaurant | "The Haunted Hamburger"
I would definitely eat here again. What a wonderful Place. It is a great value for good food and it's reasonably priced.The restaurant has an outside deck and a huge panoramic window overlooking the valley and the desert. It has a lot of memorabilia from Jerome. Jerome is an old west turn of the 19th century Copper mining town. The main draw to this place is that it is haunted by a women. As those of you who know me I am kin to spirits and I can feel their presence. She was not in the restaurant but I felt her moving around in the rooms above.
The Staff are very friendly. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. We stopped in for lunch. We all had burgers, except our little son who had a chili cheese dog, it was one of the best burgers I have ever tasted. An Added plus was the beer. It was Ice Cold which was very refreshing after driving through Cottenwood and the hot Arizona desert.

Attraction | "Canyon Dave Asventures"
We went on two tours with Canyon Dave. We never saw Canyon Dave. When going out with them, dress comfortable and wear a good pair of hiking shoes. Expect a long 12 hour day with Canyon Dave Tours. Lunch, snacks, and water are all included in your package. The first tour guide Tanya was great. Tanya picked us up at our timeshare. She was fun and personable (see picture). She gave us a wonderful tour of the Sedona area, the mining town of Jerome and Oak Creek Canyon. We learned a lot about geology and rock and mountain formations. He took us up to Montezuma's Wll and taught us a lot about the Anastaci Indians and PreCambrian Indian culture and anthropology. She even told us about a friend of hers farm and showed us some Pictographs made by early native Americans.
Tanya is very knowledgeable about the local wild life and pointed out birds to us like the Red Tail Hawk, The Turkey Vulture and a Rare Black Tailed Hawk. Dave's wife, Dora the explorer, took us on our second tour. We had to meet her in the Denny's in Flagstaff. Warning, Dora does not have patience for kids. She is very cerebral and knowledgeable of the Grand Canyon, she was a former US Park Ranger there. Dora taught us a lot about the formation of the Grand Canyon, its history and getting around in and above the canyon. Dora also took us for lunch on the Navajo Indian Reservation and out to the painted desert where we dug for petrified wood. She also explained the process how the wood became petrified and the origins to the unique development and structure to the Arizona landscape and terrain.
