Organ Pipe Cactus NM

Tuesday: (02/26) We headed into Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument stopping at the Twin Peak's campground. We settled in and had lunch, a Greek salad and ham sandwich. Nice day to relax. On our way into the park you travel a long way only seeing some of the healthiest saguaro cactus forests we've ever seen. You travel many miles before you finally see the occasional organ pipe cactus but when you arrive at the campground they are a little more prevalent but still not more than the saguaro cacti. We hiked the trail down to the Visitor Center but it was closed by the time we got there. We thought it might be but it was a nice hike through the cacti. Dinner was Chinese tofu, pineapple, noodle and vegetable stir fry. We enjoyed a solar shower at the park showers. The spray wash pressure at the car wash has nothing on these showers.
