I guess you can see by the photos that we went to Carlsbad Caverns today. We were up bright and early and on the road by 8am. We wanted to make sure we were back before the 'heat' of the day set in at the fiver. I took the furballs out for a nice walk before we left. We turned on the AC and made sure it cycled before we headed out the door. We really hate leaving the furballs for extended periods of time, but we didn't really have a choice today.
We did the natural entrance and the BIG room self guided tour--and we did get the 'recorded' tour to listen to along the way. I can't put into words how awesome this cave is---We both want to see more. There is no doubt we will return at another time and do some of the guided tours to other parts of the cave. DH was able to purchase National Parks Senior Pass today and so neither one of us had to pay
for our tour. We did pay $4.00 each for the recorded guide of the cave, but that was well worth it.
By the end of our 'cave' journey we were both tired and ready to head back to the fiver. When we arrived the furballs were cool as cucumbers and happy to see us. I took them out for a little walk and then DH and I both rested a bit.
We decided to go into Artesia for a nice steak dinner and then we went to Wally World to stock up on a few essentials before we leave on Thursday. One last note, I did adopt a bat at Carlsbad Caverns. I will have to get the photo scanned so I can share that with you next time.
