June 13, 2013 - Lukeville, Arizona, United States - An abandoned carpet bootie sits on the desert floor in a closed-to-the-public part of Organ Pipe National Monument near Lukeville, Ariz. Smugglers and migrants are known to wear carpet over their shoes to conceal identifiable tread patterns and generally obfuscate their footprints. Since 2006, nearly half of the monument has been closed to public access by order of the monument's superintendent and the Department of Homeland Security, citing concerns over safety given what agents call a high level of narcotics and human smuggling.
