Why, Arizona: Why Pyramid

Why not a pyramid in Why? Not a public attraction, might be a dwelling, maybe 15 feet tall, and appears made of bricks. It's just off the highway.

Hwy 85, Why, AZ
On the east side of Hwy 85, one-half mile north of the intersection of Hwys 85 and 86. Private property, visible from street.

The Why Pyramid is painted white now, and seems to be in a campground or a part of someone's living situation.

The pyramid is still there, but it is painted white now. And someone lives in it.

Pyramid of Why.

Why Pyramid

A pyramid rises from the Sonoran Desert on the east side of Hwy 85 just north of the intersection of Hwy 86. There are a myriad of man-made and natural pyramids throughout Arizona, but I cannot answer the question, "Why the Pyramid in Why, Arizona?" The structure towers 10-15 feet above the desert floor and appears to be build of bricks.

Beats us. It's not ancient; it was built within the past five years.
