Skull Valley, Arizona is not as scary as the name might sound. Skull Valley is a smaller little little town about 12 miles west of Prescott (former territorial capital). It is characterized by nice homes and ranches with acreage in a moderate temperature cooler than Phoenix.
Traveling around the state, after leaving the Granite Mountain Wildnerness in the Prescott National Forest, I arrived in Skull Valley and I took these pictures.
