This campground was a nice place to stay in the area. Most of the parks were filled up with oil workers, so we were fortunate to get a spot. It had been raining for two days so there was a lot of standing water, but our site was well graveled and dry. Internet service was sketchy, at best. Could not stay connected long enough to send anything out. Management was friendly and helped us to our site. Park is about 24 miles from Carlsbad Caverns.

This ended in “the big room” which is (I forgot how many football fields) big. Then the best part, we got an elevator ride back to the surface. The next day ...
I am not really one to go underground and crawl around caves. Prone to bouts of claustrophobia I much rather prefer to be on top of the ground and see the sky. My brother Tiburt and I used to go the the Tschuggaloch in Mittelberg, compared to that the Sturmannhöhle in neighboring Allgäu was quite impressive. As an adult he went into the Schneckenlochhöhle under the Gottesackerplateau.
My spelunking carreer however ...
