Very fun to hear of your travels. We love Organ Pipe and, since my sister lives in Benson, we did a tour of the caverns a little more than a year ago. They are fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

Some binoculars have tripod mounts, or they can be added. If the Lady's can make that work, I wonder if she would like a Peak Designs clip?  I carry my camera that way, and it rarely bothers me.

Thanks for another (and fun) TR !! Once I had a handful of prickly pear needles imbedded in my hand and couldn't remove them with tweezers because they're so fine. Luckily I was at home and smeared Tite Bond glue on my hand, let the glue set up until I could peel the glue off along with the stickers. Lesson learned- don't mess with them!! Good fortune with the bino's!!

A comb is also a good tool to carry, in particular if you have Cholla hitchhiking on your hide.
