We were visiting Papago Park, hiking among the variety of ponds. As part of our walk, we went up the hill to Hunt’s Tomb. This is a funky white pyramid high on a hill above the Park. Doesn’t fit there at all. But there it is! We walked up to the Tomb. From the area around the Tomb, there is a great view of the city. And below us we could see into the Phoenix Zoo and see the giraffes. We heard lions. But didn’t see them. Still pretty strange and out of place. But neat nonetheless.

Hunt's tomb is a pyramid shaped memorial dedicated to Governor George W. P. Hunt, the first Governor of Arizona who served a record number of terms in the same position. This is located inside the Papago Park, there are spaces to park nearby and it is a short hike up to the tomb itself. There are signs posted nearby which contain information about the tomb and Governor Hunt as well. It was under his gubernatorial reign that women in Arizona achieved the right to vote in elections. When I went early on a weekend morning, there was no one else. The lack of a crowd, light breeze, an aesthetic memorial and the view from the top combine to make this a worthwhile place to visit.

We saw this from the zoo earlier in the week but didn't have time to check it out that day. Went back later in the week, hiked up to Hole in the Rock, and then over to the tomb. I was amazed at the great views and the fact that no other people were up there! So we sat and enjoyed watching the animals at the zoo with our binoculars. Informative signs explain the tomb and it's easy to park and walk to. Worth stopping by if your already in the park.

If you are at Papago Park to see Hole in the Rock why not take a hike up the small hill. There sits Gov. Hunt tomb. Add a bit of Arizona history to your trip. A pleasant walk and view. Why not? if you are there already. Near the Phoenix Zoo.

Hunt's Tomb is a tomb in the shape of a small white pyramid behind a fence at the top of a hill within Papago Park. George W.P. Hunt (Arizona's first governor) had the tomb built in 1931 to entomb his wife. He was placed there after his death in 1934. The tomb was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. The tomb is easily seen from anywhere in the South West part of Papago Park on a sizable hill overlooking the Phoenix zoo and offers a panoramic view of the eastern part of the Valley of the Sun. "Dubbed "King George VII," he was a friend of the common man and a foe (sometimes) of the railroad and mining trusts, which he called "coyotes" and "skunks." Plaques on his pyramid declare that he was a descendant of an unnamed "Revolutionary War patriot," that he allowed women to vote in his state eight years before the rest of the country, and that he was elected governor seven times, which "set a national record.
