Beautiful Sonoran Desert

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument on the US/Mexican border, a place of amazing desert plants, quiet solitude, beautiful sunshine and occasional, dramatic rain, but also where reminders of political tensions are never too far away. A strange and beguiling place that I like very much

  1. Mike, beautiful photos. My four years in Tucson has given me an unexpected love and admiration for the Sonoran Desert. It brings awe, fear and a world of life to me. Thanks for the posting.
    Go well, David

    1. Thank you David, I enjoyed my brief tour of the desert landscapes immensely and especially camping out, to really get into the silence and beauty. So very different from where I’m from. I hope you enjoy every minute of living there, I envy you, but then, having read your bio, perhaps I may not have envied every part of your life journey, you’ve obviously been through a lot. Thanks for commenting and keep up the beautiful writing, Mike

  2. I love Organ Pipe. Actually, I love all the desert parks.
    Have you dipped south enough to see the wall? It is still distressing. I hope I never find it “normal” to have it sever our area.

    1. The road that runs along the border was closed, I really wanted to see it. We found the security presence all a bit depressing but it didn’t spoil the beauty. Arizona is a gorgeous state!
