Lonesome Valley Sunset

Sunset, Lonesome Valley, Arizona

Lonesome Valley. Such an evocative name. The locals don’t use that name for this portion of the Prescott Basin in the Central Arizona Highlands, because it’s no longer as lonesome as it must have been to whatever settler coined the name, perhaps back in the late 1800s.

But there is still lots of wide open country and big-sky views here. Ranches and National Forest land. The Black Hills to the east and upper Verde River to the north.

Lonesome Valley. It suits me fine.

Yavapai County, Arizona
