Border crossing and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument


Posted by whalerho | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 26-02-2010

We  left Rocky Point with heavy hearts but also ready to start our next adventure – whatever that might be!  The border crossing at Lukeville was so quick – a mere 15 minutes – and they didn’t ask us about our fruits and veges!  We had a list all ready but they didn’t seem interested which was different from every other crossing. 

We have driven by “Organ Pipe Cactus National Momument’ each time we visited Rocky Point.  We read it was the least visited National Monument so decided to give it some of our attention!  Arizona has received a lot of rain this winter and the desert was ablaze in color.  Really beautiful.  This stop was one of our favorites as it was very peaceful and the desert was so vast and beautiful.  Here is a blip about this national monument from their website:

“Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument exhibits an extraordinary collection of plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert. This is a showcase for creatures who have adapted themselves to the extreme temperatures, intense sunlight, and little rainfall that characterize this Southwest region. Twenty-six species of cactus have mastered the art of living in this place, including the park’s namesake and the giant saguaro.”

Definitely worth a stop on your way to Rocky Point.   Now onto our new “home” – Desert’s Edge RV Village near Anthem.  We are all looking forward to spending time with our good friends in the area.
