"With the border comes border patrol..." Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Warnings Or Dangers Tip by PA2AKgirl

  here we go again...& never even went in to Mexico
by PA2AKgirl

This may seem (by reading the title) that I'm writing 2 tips about the same thing, but they are not. This is what became of the incident on the first warning tip. (Or maybe because of September 11th, the new "tightening the border" thing or a combination of all 3) It used to be if you were going across border into Mexico, you had to deal with the border patrol. That makes sense...that's how it should be. But even before you get into the park, well north of the Mexico border, you have sit in a line to pass the makeshift inspection station. Sometimes going in, sometimes going out, sometimes both. Thankfully, this park isn't highly visited and not that many people (legally) use the border crossing at Lukeville, so it doesn't take too long. Just expect that even if you're not crossing into Mexico, you'll have to go through one of these mobile patrol stations.
