Skull Valley: Traveling in Arizona

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.

Skull Valley, Arizona (Wikepedia),"Skull Valley (Yavapai: Pa:qwawa Kyo) is a small, populated place, and rural, ranch community in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. It is located twelve miles west of Prescott.

  

There is a general store, a gas station, a cafe, an elementary school, an autoshop, a fire station, a church, and a post office. As of the 2003 census, the population in the Skull Valley Elementary School District was 525 people. Skull Valley was home to George Phippen (1915–1966), a well known western artist, co-founder and first president of the Cowboy Artists of America.

 

Skull Valley was so named when settlers found human remains resulting from a previous battle between Native Americans. The area's history is preserved by the Skull Valley Historical Society, which operates a free museum. Robert L. Pearson, a native of the area and retired wildlife manager, has created an online photo gallery of the area's insects."

The sky here in N. AZ almost always looks that blue! That's why it's so depressing every month when we have to come back to SoCal!
