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 ( :

Hello Beth, I enjoyed my visit to the Carlsbad Caverns. My hubby love to go caving, or least he did in his younger years. I love to visit all our national parks, we use the national park pass too. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

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.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.
