I'm from Yosemite national park. Quite different from organ pipe. Both are spectacular in their own ways.I loved the Cacti here in organ pipe. People are friendly And certainly courteous. They go out of the way to help you out. I do advise coming in the cooler winter months. As during the summer it is overbearingly hot. Have fun!!!
This place is awesome. If you love that open desert feel with big large skies This is the place to sit in kickback and relax. It is a very unique place to be able to find different species of cactuses that lie here in the States. I never really realized that there was so many different varieties of types. Not only that the variety of desert animals that strive off of this area. That are able to adapt and live in such harsh environment. I was only able to drive through. I definitely plan on visiting this area later on this year when it actually cools down It was pretty hot the day I had visited.
