Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Things to Do: 57 reviews and 95 photos
Though the Saguaro is perhaps most impressive and the Organ Pipe Cactus a formidable sight, we thought the Chain Fruit or Jumping Cholla (though our favorite name was Teddy Bear Cholla!) was the most beautiful. Though it almost looks cuddly like a teddy bear, those spines are amongst the most painful in the cactus world. These serve the cactus well to protect it from rabbits and rodents intent on eating its very tasty fruit. Their coloring was particularly pretty late in the evening or early morning when the yellow spines took on a golden hue.
