Five Shots: Jerome on Christmas

Here is the second round of photos taken on Christmas as we drove up to higher elevation and passed through the copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. We usually get snow once a year, and it is a spectacular treat for us in NC Arizona.

    1. Paul, there is a lady who has these 4 fellas perched eye-high on a fence. She changes their clothes based upon the season and holiday. It’s funny how they have become a Jerome marker!

    1. Hi Fraggled. I like them, too. They are perched on a bend and every time you drive by, they are costumed. Ya just don’t expect flamingos in a desert mining town. 😉

    1. They are so tacky they are funny. The lafy who owns these four in Jerome makes costumes for them undermeath the snow they are wearing santa hats. It is fun to see what outfit they are wearing when I drive up the hill.

    1. I had to cross over the mountain yesterday and drove by the flamingos–all the snow is gone now and they are fully exposed. The lady who has them sitting on a fence at the bend puts them into costumes. They are wearing Santa caps and it’s really funny to drive by and wonder how she has dressed them. You just don’t expect tacky flamingos in the high desert landscape. 🙂

  8. Oooh more gorgeous Wintry shots! The last one is my fave but those flamingos covered in snow made me laugh. It’s gotta be rare to see snow where you live, whilst I’m gonna be sick of it soon, ahah.
