76-Second Travel Show: ‘USA’s Greatest Pyramid’

THE PHOENIX SPECIAL

Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport is supposed to be the worst in the world for making friends. Weather’s just too good, so no stretched time for mingling during a delay, plus a relative lack of amenities. Unless you like shops selling dream catchers and ‘Paint Your Own Pony’ sets, Wendy’s and overly lit bars with $4.40 beers and no music.

I went to see if I could debunk the notion, but broke away to Papago Park for an early m morning hike to do something serious: retrace the footsteps of my favorite dead governor, seven-time Arizona governor-elect George Hunt: a strange Missourian who called himself the ‘walrus,’ and his people ‘his peepul,’ and who died 75 years ago this Christmas.

  1. I NEVER click on videos; just not my thing. But I had to see what the pyramid was all about, and laughed all the way through this. The Walrus will stick in my memory.

    Thanks Melanie. I had only a few spare hours in Phoenix, a city I’d never been, and when I found out about Hunt’s pyramid I HAD to go.

    Also thanks to Mr Ano Nymous for the links.
