Life & Death of the Organ Pipe

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument

I’m finally done travelling and can get back to my life.  Jade convinced me we needed to get out this weekend and so we did.  In wetter years, there are a lot more wildflowers in Organ Pipe.  Unfortunately, we saw at the visitor’s center that the monument was 33% less than average.  We were doubtful we’d find wildflowers and on the two hikes we concluded we were right.  There were patches of poppies here and there, but no great clumps of flowers.  Still, you make do with you you have, and after hiking Arch Canyon, we stopped near here to make dinner and watch the sun set and, of course, make a photograph or two.

  1. Hi Laurent,

    Great image. The dead Organ Pipe sure has a fascinating shape. Nice contrast with the living ones.
