Organ Pipe Cactus a Hidden Treasure

Saturday, May 17, 2014
On our recent trip to Arizona, we stop over for a day at Organ Pipe Cactus desert. If you love the desert, cactus and particularly the organ pipe cactus, you must go. To see so many organ pipes growing in the wild is absolutely amazing. The landscape is extraordinarily impressive, and a must-see for anyone interested in what a Green Desert ecosystem ought to look like. We were blown away by just how beautiful it is there, only complaint would be the heat we were just not used to weather over 90 degrees.  

We didn't got a chance to go all the way to the unpaved road part of the desert to see more of this odd shape cactus. It will take us another an hour or so plus traffic from the road construction. Unfortunately we don't have that much time, but at least we able to see this beautiful desert. With that, there's always a reason for us to come back  in the future. 

The tallest Cactus I've ever seen.
It grows in the dry hot desert part of the US and Mexico.




It's name is the Organ Pipe Cactus because the stems can grow long and tall like the pipe of an old church organ instrument
