With a mix of rain and snow moving in, we've left our boondocking spot in the Bradshaw Mountains from last week's episode from Prescott https://youtu.be/3tCVLtqOtxo , and escaped to the comfort of full hookups at lower elevation in Camp Verde, Arizona. In this week's episode of Grand Adventure we explore the Camp Verde area and the historic mining town of Jerome.
Jerome sits on a shoulder of the Mingus Mountains. Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 10,000 people in the 1920s. Today, however, its population has dwindled to less than 500, and locals now mine tourism instead of copper to fuel their economy. Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1967, and visitors today will find art galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, a state park, and a local museum devoted to mining history. We also explore the area surrounding Camp Verde, including glimpses of Montezuma's Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the western U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so you'll seldom find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds. Instead, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. And unlike most other RV channels on YouTube, we're not RV dealers or full-timers -- we're "long-timers" who tend to hit the road for weeks or months at a time, while maintaining a sticks-and-bricks home in Utah.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
