The Carlsbad Caverns

We rode into New Mexico at full tilt, a cracking tailwind raging behind us. But before we could cover much ground we were lured into an amazing National Park – The Carlsbad Caverns.

The Carlsbad Caverns sink 750 feet/230 metres below the earth into spectacular natural limestone chambers. During the warmer months of the year, the upper chambers of the cave are filled with bats. At sunset you are able to watch hundreds of thousands of bats stretching their wings and heading outside for some late breakfast. Watch out mosquitoes!!

The caverns are full of amazing limestone formations resembling a deep underwater world. Here is a glimpse at what lurks beneath:
