With Laryngitis  Sucess!

Took my little kids into the caverns and I was unable to talk or yell, very unnerving. Cool stuff! Too bad we missed the bats.

04  Sucess!

After climbing at Sitting Bull Falls we stopped here. Pretty amazing. I wanted to descend deep down those rickety ladders but the real goods were off limits.

A cool and beautiful place  Sucess!

Got there too late to hike in or out. But walking around there was amazing. We were there on a pretty busy day, but the caverns are massive and there's plenty of room to set up for photos or just take it in.

Cool caverns  Sucess!

We did this as a combined leg of our trip with Guadalupe Mtns. I've never been inside a cave, and it was eerily beautiful. Combined it with the constant 58 degree temp, I could stay down there for a while. Had to take the elevator up though, which sucked! The hiking path out was already closed.

didn't bother with the elevator  Sucess!

After Guadelupe the day before this was a great low temp hike underground.

Amazing  Sucess!

Nothing I can write can explain how sick this cavern was. No other alternative other than going and seeing it for yourself.

Hiking Underground  Sucess!

is a different experience, but well worth it. If you are in the area and like Tex-Mex, make sure to eat at Lucy's in Carlsbad.
