Woodchute Mountain Panorama

Woodchute Mountain, Prescott National Forest, Arizona

Early spring in the central Arizona highlands. Driving the back roads of the Prescott National Forest east of Chino Valley, I stopped at an enticing vantage point. A clear 360-degree view.

To the south was Woodchute Mountain, the northern end of the Black Hills between the Verde Valley and the Prescott basin. Woodchute has a small wilderness area on its steep north flanks.

As the sun sank toward the western horizon, the shadows lengthened, accentuating every fold in the mountains, as well as those of the pinon and juniper trees in the foreground.

Location: Perkinsville Road, northern Yavapai County, Arizona.
