It never gets old seeing photos projected on a huge, digital TV news screen. Watch my “Arizona Morning” interview at bit.ly/MikahAZ

For its more diverse landscape. For its greater variety in cacti. And for its allure along the border. I rate @organpipenps higher than the nearby, and better known, @saguaronationalpark. Visit both and send me a message and lemme know if you agree/disagree.

Sometimes the wind just takes over and it’s more like a dust blocker than a flag.

SONORA THUNDERSTORM - Light like liquid honey and black clouds as a background is the weather I really love. I had to wait for hours at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southern Arizona before the sun finally could make it through a small crack on the horizon. #sonoradesert #arizona #organpipecactus #organpipecactusnationalmonument #saguarocactus #landscapephotography #patrickloertscherphotography #patrickloertscher #analogphotography

In the belly of the beast. This is one of those times to be VERY conscious of everything around you.

If you’re wondering why it’s called “Organ Pipe Cactus” National Monument... (Side note: having spent much of my professional life around organs/organists, this would be the most busted set of organ pipes anywhere).

I realized I don’t take enough pictures with Vanny. The true hero of this journey. 50,000 miles and counting...

Spring in Arizona brings about the most beautiful cactus blooms, many of which only last for one day. I found this gem right down my neighborhood street. I was so excited that I stopped my car, got out and snapped this photo. This particular cactus is the Organ Pipe Cactus and it produces a deep red fruit that is edible. #arizona #cactus #organpipecactus #cactusbloom #cactusblossom #desert #sonorandesert #spring #beauty #optoutside #nofilter #iphone #themoreyouknow #iphone7plus #iphoneonly

Refreshed my #OrganPipe #cactus design for #screenprinting after my current one snapped today while I was using it. Yikes! These things rarely happen to me, but it gave me the opportunity to add a few more elements to the design such as #birds 🐦🐦🐦 Can’t wait to use the new one ❤️❤️❤️

I feel like Simba 🦁 could roar from atop either of these peaks in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Back on the mainland with more Arizona to explore/share!

Is there a desert more beautiful than the Sonoran Desert? This rhetorical question often runs through my mind at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument . . .

The Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a U.S. National Monument and UNESCO biosphere reserve located in extreme southern Arizona that shares a border with the Mexican state of Sonora. The park is the only place in the United States where the organ pipe cactus grows wild. #intrepidfilams #intrepidsisters #organpipecactusnationalmonument #ajoarizona #visitarizona #nationalmonument #unescobiospherereserve #americathebeautiful #travelkids #filipinoamerican #sandiegan #californiagirls #kidsofinstagram #instagramkids #organpipecactus #cactus #desert

Established April 13, 1939, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is a world biosphere reserve known for having the only organ pipe cactus growing naturally in the US. The cactus can live up to 150 years in age, and only blooms around the age of 35! You can see them in bloom in May & June.

Artists Trading Cards 2018, ready to swap. My inspiration this year is a photograph of a majestic Saguaro cactus that I took at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Ajo, Arizona, just a few weeks ago. Tiny original artworks. Mixed media on paper.

“There are two types of folks you’ll see coming through here,” a ranger tells us in Organ Pipe National Monument. “The guys you see in the daytime, they’re coming from parts south of Mexico. They want to get caught. They’re seeking asylum.” “The other guys, you don’t see them as much. They come through at night. They’re the drug smugglers. We get 1,000 a month but,” he looks into the desert, “I’ve never seen even one.” The visitor center here is named for a border patrol agent who was killed by violent smugglers in 2003. I struggle with why this is necessary. I like math. We know that alcohol use rose 70% during prohibition. 34,000 people died from heroine, cocaine and meth in 2016. 17,500 more were killed in drug related homicides. Carry the one, divide by something, and so on...we could save 36,000 lives just by legalizing all of this stuff. Will people still die and will lives still be wrecked by drug addiction? Yes. But we already allow 480,000 people to kill themselves with tobacco every year. History says legalization reduces both crime and usage. We shout the benefits of deregulation on energy and banks, but rip the red white and blue right out of anyone who chooses to deregulate their own bodies. And we haven’t even touched on the number of lives ruined due to jail time for pot. “I can’t agree with you,” another ranger says, scratching his chest just above his badge, “but I think a lot of people in the know would.” Headed out of the park on our way to the next place, we pass a series of billboards. “States with legal marijuana had 25% less opioid deaths,” the signs claim. Apparently more people “in the know” agree than ever before. #warondrugs #borderpatrol #nationalparks #findyourpark #mexicoborder #organpipecactus #saguaros #drugsdontkillpeoplegovernmentsdo #openborders #abettermexicoisabetteramerica #familyontheroad #thefamilyvan

I’ve just embarked on my latest odyssey: a trip entailing 10 days, four states (California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas); three national parks (Guadalupe Mountains, Carlsbad Caverns, and Big Bend); two national monuments (Organ Mountains Desert Peaks, and White Sands); and three deserts (Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan). After a first day of travel, I’ve stopped in Tucson for the night, where I’m resting, and looking ahead to tomorrow’s drive to Las Cruces in The Land of Enchantment. While going forward, I’ve also gone back and reflected on my trip to Arizona last November, when I visited Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, and Saguaro National Park. Here’s to happy travels, making memories, and reminiscing... #travel #travelphotography #roadtrip #roadtripping #wanderlust #instaphoto #arizona #southwest #sonorandesert #desert #deserts #organpipecactus #organpipecactusnationalmonument #nps #nationalmonument #biospherereserve #visitorscenter #travelingram #travelmemories #memories #reminiscing #lovetotravel #nature #southernarizona #thedesertisbeautifultoo #ontheroad

We found a cactus wren's nest nestled in this organ pipe cactus yesterday. If you are ever in Tucson, I *highly* recommend the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. It's incredible. We learned about the plants, animals, caves, gems, natural history & more of this special desert. And the night before we got to camp in Saguaro National Park. My colleague and I are geeking HARD about plants on this trip! It's a dream come true, even with the sun radiating beating and zapping down on us in every daytime moment 😉☀️☀️🌵😍 #arizonasonoradesertmuseum #sonoran #saguaronationalpark #desert #cactuswren #organpipecactus #tucson

The cactus in front of my home only blooms from March to May or June. And when it blooms, it is the most spectacular fuschia and a slightly sweet smell. #cactus #cactusblossom #organpipecactus #desertfauna #springtime #springisintheair

Those little buds on this Organ Pipe Cactus will soon turn into white flowers. We learned that each flower only blooms one time, and they only bloom at night. Nature is so interesting! @organpipenps

Growing up in the Midwest, I always pictured the desert to be a flat, barren place. I never imagined the varied landscapes that the Southwest has to offer! 🌄 That’s why I encourage everyone to travel - there is a great big world out there and things may just be different than your preconceived assumptions. 🌎 @organpipenps

We took an adventure down to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument (@organpipenps) which is about a three hour drive from Apache Junction, AZ where we are currently parked. The National Monument is right on the Mexican border and the only place in the U.S. where the Organ Pipe Cactus grow.
