This morning, we decided to drive the 40 miles south on hwy 85 through the small town of Why to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
We were a little slow getting started and didn’t get on the road till 12:30. This retirement is killing our mornings. The road south is straight as an arrow about 8 miles to the town of Why. Couldn’t really find a town,but there were two gas stations at the hwy 86 junction and a fire station.
About 16 miles further south and about 6 miles from Mexico, we stopped at the Welcome Center to sign in. From there we took a 21 mile loop road through the Ajo Mountains. Here some some pictures of the beautiful scenery:
Estes Valley. Those mountains are in Mexico.
Arches with zoom.
