On our five day trip through Arizona, Texas and New Mexico we stopped at Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
If you would like to see more photos of where we stopped go to http://teresazuehls.blogspot.com/2013/02/hello-im-back-finally-had-computer.html
You can view the photos better if you click on them and view them larger. Since there are quite a few pictures I'm not going to comment on all of them.
I believe this part was called Room of Giants.
This is called Fairyland it is full of Popcorn covered Stalagmites.
This formation is called Temple of the Sun and is Columns, Stalagmites and Stalactites.
I thought this looks like a big dome or white tent.
They call this Column Rock of Ages.
This area is called Doll Theater and is made up of Soda Straws and small Columns.
This is called Chinese Theater and is filled with Columns, Stalactites, and Stalagmites.
This is so much prettier in real life. You can see a bit of the columns reflection in the water.
After walking up about 30 switchbacks we finally saw the opening to the cave.
It has like a double opening. You can just see a part of the second opening down below. If you would like in the evening you can watch the thousands of bats fly out of the entrance. There is a sign that says please sit still and be quiet. Well I would not be able to do that. I would be screaming and running to the truck as fast as I could. :}.
If you have been to the Cavern before let me know about your visit and if you were brave enough to watch the bats come out.
