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


About Mike Howe

I am an ecologist and a composer of guitar based instrumental melodies signed to the Real Music label in California. I like to write about my work, music and nature conservation and how it all comes together. I try not to write about things I don't know much about.

  1. I’ve been there and it is every bit as beautiful as you say!

    I love the skies in these. Beautiful contrasts.

  3. 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.

      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!
