Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico




"Carlsbad Caverns" National Park, New Mexico. I have numerous shots, and even some video... But have you ever taken pics or video in a cave? It doesn't turn out as well as you would have hope it would??! =:-(  

I'm from Virginia ...there are tons of caves around here you can visit... & for a whole lot cheaper. I'm an experienced camper/traveler, I know at times in our lives we have give and take, making big decisions as to where spend the extra money & where to save those pennies for the future important trips.  

I did visit the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns... well, I just didn't get the feeling(s) I thought, I would. From the rumors I had heard, I expected the heavens to open, angels to sing, etc. etc. GUESS WHAT, that didn't happen? It was like wow, a hole in the ground??! (I guess I should add to that, if you want to pick a side at the Grand Canyon of must see, go to the North side, less commercial and so must more natural. Quiet. Perfect!!) WHAT, I just headed here, spent money on my National Parks pass for this? Kind of like I spent time shaving my legs for this? Meaning there are far more superior National Parks than the Grand Canyon. (this is just my humble opinion, & you may totally disagree & that is totally ok.) I would say if you are low on money or just don't have the time, save your money and go to a more simple lower priced caverns and don't feel you are missing out. Why not the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive here in Virginia, The mountains you will see here in Virginia... or in Colorado, Bryce Canyon National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone are far more superior. But by all means if you have the time, extra spending doe and want to see all National Parks around the USA please do so. Have a great day and thank you for stopping by. Take care. Beth ( :

I'd love seeing the caverns. Caves are relatively rare in these parts.

You know, I don't think I've ever been in a cave. Being that I'm claustrophobic, that's probably why, but even as a kid I don't recall having ever been in one.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We had dinner at "Pyramid Lake Resort". We were camping at the Wapiti campground within Jasper National Park. We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
