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.

Interesting trip around the Lakeville area. Too bad you couldn't get to Quitobaquito. Its like a little oasis. What a beautiful crested saguaro! It looked majestic! I remember when we stayed right at your Gold Rush sight. 😃 Any more burros along the trail? Have a good Tuesday.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dolly. Stayed here many times over the years. No more burros. Yuma has them spooked 👻Delete
I see Yuma knows where the pats are!ReplyDelete
Doesn't take much for Yuma to be your best buddy 👍Delete
Love the crested saguaro! Cute pic of the 4 of you outside..looks lovely! Dinner sounds wonderful. Hopefully you get the Yuma call soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shirley. Glad to find such a nice crested saguaro. Been limping along on batteries. Running genny for a couple hours in the evening holds it up.Delete
Lovely pictures! Beautiful crested saguaro. We remember seeing one along the highway but not sure if that is the same one. Thanks for sharing, all of you! :)ReplyDelete
Your long locks reminds me that I should sit Bill down in our room and cut his! A little too unruly for me!
It probably was. This one is right next to hwy 85 in the park. Glad I'm haircut reminder 😌Delete
It was a great ride and your pictures are beautiful. Maybe I will just refer people to your post...:) I enjoy seeing what someone, looking at the same views, decides to share. Glad you enjoyed seeing the Crested Saguaro. We truly are enjoying our time here parked next door in this place.ReplyDelete
Thanks Deb. It is fun to see the same thing thru each other's eye in pictures. Had a great time.Delete
Finally a crested saguaro! Great picture with the crown against the blue sky. Shame so many cactus and migration routes were destroyed to build the wall :(ReplyDelete
The wall destroys things and interrupts the animal routes. Not good for either side. Proud of my crested saguaro:)Delete
Glad that you all found things that you had not seen before on your expedition.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Thanks Rick. Always something new if you look.Delete
Looks like Yuma was enjoying his time with Deb. Great pictures!ReplyDelete
Doesn't take much to make Yuma happy.Delete
