I noticed on the maps that this high, wide, beautiful valley between the Black Hills and north of Prescott, Arizona is called Lonesome Valley. It’s getting kind of crowded these days, but fortunately there is still lots of National Forest and other public land surrounding it on which to roam.
From the town of Chino Valley I drove east on Perkinsville Road. Finding a nice vantage point, I made a four shot panorama to be merged later in Photoshop into a single, high resolution, very large digital image. Here is a blog-friendly version of the finished product. Click on the image to see a much larger version.
