... everyday words. Serendipity.

And to wrap things up, here we are, almost three months and thousands of study words later: departure day. I have learned a lot about Liam, language, and the purpose of this sort of competition. I was not a huge fan of spelling bees because I thought all the kids became word list automatons. Turns out I was wrong.

... The views are not as spectacular as the last park. Once again we have low vegetation with some trees in the campground. There is a reservoir with a dam but no swimming. You can see for miles around and you can see some foothills in the distance. Our site is nice with a shaded picnic area. The last park had bison and deer; this park has bunnies and birds. More photo ops!

We made it and a sigh of relief is an understatement. The good times are rolling.

... Carlsbad, these are widely regarded as some of the most magnificent. Over millions of years, the limestone bedrock has been eroded and shaped by sulfuric acid originating from petroleum deposits buried deep within. This process of speleogenesis (we learned some new words; bear with our giddiness) has produced the indescribable beauty of the caverns, specifically: stalactites (stalaCtites hang from the ceiling), stalagmites ...

... After resting for a bit we head back up to the caverns for the bat flight, set to take place at dusk.

When we get there the ranger is giving a talk on the bats and asks us to turn off all electronic devices. As he has his back to the entrance he also asks us to let him know when the bats start to appear, so that he can be quiet and let us watch them without disturbing them. The bats are Mexican Free Tail bats that migrate here for ...
