Papago Park

After the Wind Cave Hike, we realized we needed more stamina before tackling the more challenging climbs. On New Year's Eve we decided to go back to A Mountain for a work out. I knew the Tempe Town Party was that evening but hadn't anticipated the roads being closed so early in the day. People were already filling the parking lots for an early start on getting liquored up. We couldn't get to A Mountain. Since we already had our hiking duds on we drove a few miles to Papago Park. There aren't any challenging climbs but we could do some hiking. The big draw in the Park is "Hole in the Rock" I'm guessing they must have held a contest years ago to name this geographic feature and not many people entered.
After catching up on the latest graffiti postings (I like to call them rock blogs), we headed off to the next park attraction - Governor Hunt's Tomb

George Hunt was Arizona's first governor after statehood in 1912. Actually he was governor before and after statehood. He was governor of Arizona seven times. He would probably still be governor of Arizona if he hadn't died. But if he hadn't died, we wouldn't have Governor Hunt's Tomb to visit. The tomb is a pyramid finished in white bathroom tile. He wasn't the first to be buried here. His wife was buried here three years before George. Back in 1931, this location was a lonely hill in the desert about eight miles from Phoenix. Why would he bury her here? I think the answer lies in another mystical riddle. Why did they bury the old Indian on the north side of the hill?He was dead.
