So, if you've read the blog recently, you know that last
weekend I was in Jerome with my girlfriends.
(Love these crazy kids!)

Jerome is one of Arizona's most talked about, historic, unique, colorful, artistic, and haunted, little towns.
(Lot's of cool stuff to photograph, too!)

You can read the pre-trip post, here, about the 'Ghostly Encounter' I had the last time I stayed over night at the Jerome Grand Hotel (room 43 I think we decided it was)
|Picked up a new book while it town,....should have read this before my last trip! ;-)|
I've been fascinated with ghosts and ghost/supernatural/spirit stories since I was a little girl, but since I wasn't really looking to hit the 'replay' button on the above mentioned experience again, I was careful to 'ground' myself prior to entering the hotel this time; and, I had a little 'talk' with the spirits who inhabit this super cool, old building (it was once a hospital), letting them know my rules and intentions from the get-go!
For the people who have asked how our weekend was and told us to post some things, here's a little pictorial for you.
The 'Haunted' Jerome Grand Hotel
My sister and I were up rather early Sunday morning and got the chance to chat with Carrie, a super nice guest at the hotel who was also up with the sun and sitting outside. After exchanging stories and telling her to go to the Flatiron for the best coffee on the planet once her friends woke up and started moving about, we went our separate ways - saying hello to them at the restaurant later that morning.
You can read my 'review' of The Flatiron, here!
Well, Carrie messaged me this week with quite the story telling about how she recorded some 'whispering' in her hotel room during the night with her phone!
She said she didn't hear the whispering while it was happening and didn't bother to listen to her recording until returning back to the Valley at the end of the weekend, and that's when she discovered it! You can read her comments, here, at the bottom of the post.
Pretty scary stuff if you ask me!!
You'll be happy to know (or possibly disappointed) that I was not visited by, nor did I see any ghostly beings,...although, we did capture something in this photo (an apparition, perhaps?).
The people who were up on the 4th floor with their EMF meter and IR thermometer were picking up quite the activity in this exact location and upon seeing the photo, were certain that our 'something' really was 'SOMETHING'!
I hope if you're ever in Arizona, that you take the time to visit Jerome.

It's a great little place, full of excitement, full of history, fun, adventure, great people and lots of photo ops.

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and
Hanging with Friends in Haunted Places!
