A Trip - Carlsbad Caverns

I was looking at some old pictures of ours and came across a few of a trip to Carlsbad Caverns.  Just a few hours down the road from us and has more to explore than one day will allow.  We made the most of our one day and had a blast.

*This Trip was about 6 or 7 years ago and the first pictures my wife and I have put on the Internet of the girls.*

So I get Lucky to add their Pictures on Anything at Anytime.

My Wife, Mother-in-Law, and girls
getting ready for the descent.

As you can see a very long and back and forth zig-zag going down

Now, I am not the best or the worst using a camera.  I have made some fantastic shots and some really "How did you do that shots?".  But down in the caverns themselves for some reason the flash was not working all that great but I will show you a few from inside.
Same Column but of course
a closeup.

A little ways in thought the
column on the right was interesting.
I Really wish this picture had come out better there were
three or four different colors and was just awesome.
The Girls a few yards ahead of Mom and Dad 
The next part is what you get to see if you stick around till later in the day or early evening.  Carlsbad Caverns is full of bats deep into the caverns that people are not allowed to walk.  

Everyone getting in place to see the bats.

Bats coming out in the upper right hand corner.
They do a spiral coming out of the cave and you can actually hear them coming.
If you have ever seen a mass flocking of birds it looks very similar.

The circle on the right was the first wave.
The middle was the second wave.
You can see stragglers  moving in from the left.

Of Course we had to stop by the gift shop afterwards so that the girls could adopt a bat and even to this day when they see a bat flying around in our block they Wonder aloud "Is that our bat come to pay a visit?"

If you ever find yourself traveling far West Texas, the Texas Panhandle or even New Mexico try and figure a day to stop by and see what is in those caverns.  A completely Beautiful and Awesome site.

Please be safe and have a good day.


  1. I went when I was younger! It was great fun!

    I read somewhere that you can see bats in huge flocks like that on doppler weather radar.

    Which is pretty cool. And pretty icky. Both. All at once :)

  2. OOoh I love these pictures! Looks like so much fun.

  3. Carlsbad Caverns is is still one of my favorite trips I've taken. It a truly amazing experience. Thanks for the remembrance.

  4. Those caves look amazing. Wonderful family memory. Thankyou for sharing
