Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Ariz.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is named for the long, thin cacti that dot this desert landscape. But within the park visitors will find more than two dozen species of cactus and animals like the mountain lion and kangaroo rat that have adapted to the harsh habitat.
