The second full day in New Mexico we visited Carlsbad Caverns National Park. My camera couldn’t capture the beauty we witnessed on the 1.25 mile hike down from the natural entrance into the Big Room. Of course, it is pitch black once you get into the caverns and the little bit of artificial lighting made it very difficult for my photos to come out sharp.

The Big Room tour was also an additional 1.25 miles loop among all the amazing rock formations. So, there was a lot of walking done but my boys were troopers. Luckily, we took the elevator back up to the surface, so we didn’t need to climb out from 750 feet below.
