Our first adventure was the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico.
We got to the park and toured the visitor center for a bit. Then decided to take the “Natural Entrance” to the bat caves.
We walked out along a path and right up into the cavern.
The cavern was nice and cool and dark! Graydon definitely took a nap while we toured. I was quite a walk down into the cavern, where you then walk through the great room.
After we walked down into the cavern and toured the Big Room, we opted to take the elevator back up into the visitor center.
We were then back on the road, headed to White Sands National Monument.
