January 27 – January 29, 2017.
The Organ Pipe cacti are like us. They don’t like cold weather. We decided to head south to check them out at the Organ Pipe National Monument in Southern Arizona.
We decided to break our pattern and spend money to stay in the park’s campground. There was a nighttime ranger talk we wanted to attend. And the campground boasted of solar showers. The showers were the warmest part of our stay, with the water temps maxing out at around 60 degrees midday. Organ Pipe was definitely worth the visit, though.
We also spent a little time in the town of Ajo, just north of organ pipe. (Ajo is Spanish for garlic.) Enjoy the pictures of this special town.
