The parking lot is open. It's just a short walk up the hill to the pyramid.

Governor Hunt's Pyramid Tomb

We saw Governor Hunt's Pyramid Tomb as we went to see the Hole-In-Rock. This is just something unusual out on a hill. I guess you can say it is small glimpse of something like you would find in Egypt. We drove up to it just to check it out -- pretty good for a tombstone.
