  • Not a high visited national park, but well worth the drive to view the landscape whether by car or foot. It as boots on for me and a great hike to get up close to the natural environement and see...

  • I had a wonderful experience visiting this place! The grounds were immaculate and well cared-for. The facilities were top-notch and the staff was very helpful. Great place for hiking, camping, photography, fun with the family. You get a little metal pin if you hike 5 miles on the trails there. I hiked 5 miles on the trails but they ran out of the little pins. They took my name down and said they would mail one out to me. Just got the mail and the pin was in there! Cant speak highly enough about this place!
  • Organ Pipe National Monument has been on my bucket list for many years now, so glad I took the time to finally check it out!!! It’s a magical place with scenic shots at every turn and majestic century old Organ Pipe Cactus stretching their arms to the heavens. Sky shots here are AMAZING. Deep green Organ Pipe Cacti set against a stormy gray sky or stretching their arms heaven ward against a deep blue sky with billowing white puffy thunderheads. Either way is dramatic and touches the soul. Very few tourists and lots of solitude. A great place to connect with nature. From Gila Bend, the 1 hour journey South on I-85 is totally worthy he drive time! Stunning views at every turn.
