Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Arizona – April 2022 – Sonoran Desert Specialty

The Organ Pipe Cactus is very different from the more prevalent Saguaro in that rather than 1 large trunk with arms growing off of it, the Organ Pipe cactus has numerous small ones, making it somewhat bushy, resembling the pipes of an Organ (hence the name)

It is very rare in the United States, with the national monument just north of the Mexican border being the predominant one.

In addition to the Organ Pipe Cactus and the Saguaro, the park has many other examples of desert flora.
