Carlsbad Caverns is better than all the other caverns I've been to during my lifetime. End of rave! A must see!
The highway sign for the cavern is the same as it was in the days of "Leave it to Beaver". We had lunch there and give it a 4 star, farm to fork recommendation.
Once you leave the highway there's a 7 mile climb up through Walnut Canyon to get to the Cavern. A bonus we didn't expect!
The natural cave entrance looking up, way up! Down we go, 750 feet down a 20 percent grade to reach the bottom. We walked about 3 miles today, underground!
Mmmm??? Stalagmite or stalactite? Tights fall down, right?
Some cave formations are most unusual.
