Our last stop on our Southern Arizona Tour was at the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument on the Mexican – U.S. border. The elevation at Organ Pipe is around 1.600 feet, the high temperatures during the day in mid-April were nearing 90 degrees Fahrenheit, but don’t worry – it’s a dry heat – humidity less than 9 percent!
We chose to end our tour here in Organ Pipe, perhaps next time we lead a tour through southern Arizona we will continue on to Yuma. Some of our LTV group went on their own to Yuma. Among other things, there’s a state historic park in Yuma – a prison that dates back to when Arizona was still a territory, opened July 1, 1876 and closed September 15, 1909. But we’ll have to include that in our next tour of southern Arizona.
Many of the pictures in this post were donated by our Leisure Travel Van tour group. Let’s take a look at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument…
This post concludes our 2021 Southern Arizona Leisure Travel Van Tour. This was truly an epic adventure! We started the journey as mostly strangers and ended as good friends.
Traveling is always a great adventure for us, a chance to see something new. There’s only one thing better than traveling – that’s traveling with other people with similar interests! Seeing new things and being on an adventure with other people makes the journey so much better than traveling alone!
The road of life is full of ups and downs and twists and turns. We need God’s help and each other to navigate all the challenges life brings our way. Don’t try to go it alone. Until next time on the Barber Road…
