Organ Pipe

Before leaving the Ajo area we wanted to visit Organ Pipe National Monument.

I didn't know that this is as far north as Organ Pipe cactus grow. They are much more plentiful further south in Mexico.

If you take a close look above this large arch you can see a tiny, fragile arch right above the big one.

There's a port of entry right in this National Park. It's a pretty small town, but the only place you can get an ice cream for miles around.

You gotta love these rickiddy old sun shades; on a hot day they're a blessing.


  1. You are not but about 65 miles from some beautiful beaches in Puerto Penasco....or as the local Americans call it...Rocky Point
