Before getting to today's stay at home day, let's finish yesterday's scenic drive through Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
When we left the arches, we were then making the turn back east towards the end of our circle. Oh, and if you go back to the double arch and zoom in the top one you will notice a support bar going through it giving the top support.
To my surprise, Deb noticed another hole in the wall or arch as we were driving down. None of us had ever seen it on our previous trips here.

With that picture we ended our scenic circle drive at hwy 85 where we started.
I asked if they had ever seen the Quitobaquito pond down at the Mexican border and they hadn't. Since we had daylight left, I was going to be their guide to the pond.
It is located on the U.S. border road that runs along the wall being built and we wanted to see that too. We drove the few miles south on hwy 85 almost to Lukeville, but the road had signs saying the road was closed due to the construction of the wall.
That ended the pond idea, but we decided to drive to the Mexican border in Lukeville to see if we could get a few pictures.
