    ... stop on our New Mexico itinerary was Carlsbad Caverns. Carlsbad Caverns is nothing other than unbelievably impressive. We visited Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, and it is big, but Carlsbad was dizzying in its beauty. We entered through the natural entrance and it took us an hour to walk down to the Big Room and meet our ranger guide for a tour of the King's Palace. The thing about Carlsbad that is hard to comprehend is the incredible variety of ...

    ... I heard the pronouncer give Liam his word, only to open my eyes in amazement when Liam finished spelling correctly. Then the pronouncer went 'off-list.' This is when things got interesting: The kids who had memorized the word list were dropping like flies. They had successfully spelled words like gnathonic, braggadocio, weissnichtwo, schadenfreude, and galjoen correctly. Now they were misspelling words like ballast, irate, and ...

We get to the Big Room and start walking round, every time you go round ...

    Up in the morning, get a fry up from the people at the campsite, have a wee conversation with an old lad called Jim about RVs and camping. Now that I'm a seasoned pro and all that! We head off to see the meteor hole. Have a walk round the museum and take a few pictures. Was very interesting. I won't bore you with the details, google it. Only cause we left 10minutes ago and I forgot already. We drove ...

    ... a full blown storm in the evening. Out Korean friend thought it was a tornado. I felt sorry for those cooking dinner as it was not the best conditions. They attempted to put up a gazebo but the wind was too strong and we all had to step in to hold it down and eventually put it away when everyone gave up. Added to this the lightning was amazing! Needless to say with nothing else to do it was an early night all ...
