Photographer Daniel Lombardi Captures Border Geography

In a dusty corner of Organ Pipe National Monument, where the sounds of children playing soccer drift over the border fence, a path leads to a memorial where Chris Eggle was killed by a cartel hit squad in 2002.

Chris Eggle was a law enforcement Park Ranger and his death prompted park managers to close nearly 70 percent of the monument in 2003. Though some small areas were later reopened, Organ Pipe remained largely closed to the public for over a decade. (Daniel Lombardi)
