More Pyramids in Arizona
Here is some more pyramid lore connected with the state.
Charles Debrille Poston is known as the "Father of Arizona." http://home.southwind.net/~crowther/Dibrell/CDP.html
In 1863 he named the Territory of Arizona and obtained the signature of President Lincoln for its authorization. He was also responsible for the Congressional enactment that created the territory and was its first Congressional deligate. In a previous post I have discussed the significance of the name "Ari-zona." http://theorionzone.blogspot.com/2006_10_01_archive.html

He died in Phoenix (Valley of the Sun) in 1902. His remains rest in a pyramid-shaped monument at the summit of Poston's Butte near Florence, Arizona, where he had once hoped to build a Temple to the Sun.
Papago Park is within sight of an archaeo-astronomical observatory once used by the Hohokam but now called Hole-in-the-Rock. The Hunt’s family mausoleum was constructed in the style of a white-tiled Egyptian pyramid.
The letter "A" as in Arizona is itself a pyramid.
