Moon, Plane and Papago Park

I went out at dusk to capture this photo of the Moon, a plane, Papago park, and you can even see Hunt's Tomb in the middle of the mountain.

Hunt's Tomb is the actual tomb where the remains of George W. P. Hunt are located. He died in 1934 and was Arizona's first governor, serving seven terms so he was very popular.

The tomb is a small white pyramid that is located behind a fence near the top of a hill within Papago Park.

Hunt built the tomb in 1931 to house his wife's remains. Their daughter and his wife's family are also buried in the tomb.

What a nice shot Julie! The light was just right. That is a fascinating bit of information on the tomb too.
