Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is only 4 miles away. . .

and is so close to Mexico that warning signs are posted. . .

Areas of the park that have been closed since 2003
reopened to the public in September 2014. . .

Organ Pipe Cactus

we are here to specifically see the Organ Pipe Cactus
which only grows in this specific area of the Sonoran Desert
due to it’s susceptibility to frost. . .

RV Park at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument - all dry camping  RV Park at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument - all dry camping - cement RV Pads

and of course we needed to check out the RV Park located just
past the Visitor Center for any of our RV friends
who might like to stay in the National Park. . .

all dry camping. . .but lovely level cement pads available. . .

We are glad we made this stop. . .
not only to see another beautiful place. . .
but to check another National Park off the list. . .

a really great NP, well worth a visit. . .

See you next time in Yuma,
