    This is our third visit to this RV spot. and this place is not an RV "resort" at all...more like a camping experience. The sites are tight and not kept up, the bathrooms are atrocious. BUT...location, location, location. It's right at the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns. No 30-60 minute drive from town to get here every day. I like the place. The staff is helpful, friendly and informative. You just have to take some time to get to know then. I happen to like the "camping" experience...and the views are spectacular plus all the stars at night you can want. We'll be back.

    This is our third visit to the Carlsbad Caverns and it turned out to be the best yet. There is so much to see once you get down into the caverns.

    You can get into the caverns one of two ways: Once, you can descend via the elevator....750 feet down! ...or Two, you can walk down via the Natural Entrance, down as far as an 80 …

    ... Palace' guided tour to a section of the caverns not open the casual visitor. I chose to enter the caverns via the 'Natural Entrance' (as opposed to taking the elevator.)

    I entered the cave at 11:05am, actually experiencing a moment of primal fear - something in the brain stem was triggering, and sending signals to my brain ...

    ... to the attention of the general public. By 1930 Carlsbad Caverns National Park was created. The caverns are the summer home to the Mexican free-tailed bats and every evening they are a spectacle to see as they fly out of the cavern for feeding. The bats however, are late getting here this year because it is too cool. So no bat pictures for you (they are in a separate cavern anyway, so I couldn’t get pictures anyway).

    Back to the caverns, you are in a constant state of ...

    After visiting the museum I looked for a place to eat dinner and spotted Michelle's Burgers and Steaks, a little family-owned place near my hotel. After eating my burger I was amazed to learn that a total stranger had already paid my bill!

    ... missiles are being fired, we keep our fingers crossed that's not today, as there is not really any alternative route. We drive this route without being fired at and continue along towards Roswell. At Roswell we turn south towards Carlsbad Caverns. An uneventful journey across miles of plains and through a few mountains and we get to the caverns for about 1:30pm. This is what we had hoped for as it gives us time to walk in the Natural ...
