Skull Valley: Just Another Mayberry
We pictured a desolate place with dead trees and vultures sitting on them waiting to pounce on any unsuspecting visitors. We couldn't have been more wrong. It was more like, "welcome to Mayberry", rather than "hell". It was a sweet and quaint place with a small hometown cafe, market, and gas/garage with 50's looking pumps out front. The homes were in great condition with the yards groomed with pride. There was a museum which was closed and a darling little school house. We were also amazed at all the huge trees lining the streets, which were probably about 100 years old. The town is definitely off the beaten path and one of the great finds on the back roads of Arizona.
