Carlsbad Caverns NM

Over the Memorial day weekend we took a road trip to West Texas and decided to go even further west to Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico. It has been 20+ years since we have been there.

Of course the Caverns have not changed much, but still fun to walk the 2.5 miles to and around the very bottom. Then I decided to try to beat the 1 hour elevator ride back to the top. I got my workout for sure.

I have never taken pictures in such low light, but flash was allowed and some areas are lighted. It was hard to focus the camera, but here are a few of the better pictures.

I would like to go all the way out there for close up.
