A nice stop on the way to the Grand Canyon is Carlsbad Caverns. We considered it a pre-hike warm-up. It’s not a small walk but it’s very cool in temperature and affect down there and you can take an elevator up which has no resemblance to hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up. The stalactites and stalagmites just keep coming and the beauty of the cave is kinda overwhelming.
One rule we weren’t very good at was talking aoftky. There are 18 of us, ok. Also we tend to be a loud bunch pretty much all the time. I’m learning about this video logging so thanks for your patience. More coming….
