On a beautiful Saturday we took a walk on the Park Point Beach from the Sky Harbor Airport to the tip of Park Point. These are some of the things we encountered along the way.

Driftwood shelters are a common sight on the beach. Duluth Minnesota is in the background.

Driftwood is also found all along the beach. On one walk we found a young couple trying to carry a large root system to their car. I would probably make a great coffee table.

This is a memorial to Luke Voigt. Luke was tragically killed in a freak accident. The family was on a sailboat trip when a violent storm approached. They headed for safety at tip of Park Point. Everyone left the sailboat for shore when large hail started to fall. They then headed back to the sailboat but before they made it a lightening bold hid the water. Seven people were injured and Luke was killed.

Park Point is mainly a sand beach but in many areas there are pebbles along the shore.
