    ... to include a lunchroom (and requisite gift shop) 750 feet below the surface. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I have mixed emotions about the presence of the lunchroom, but after a few hours of wandering the cavern, I have to admit that a bite to eat and a hot cup of coffee was welcomed. We even took the opportunity to mail a few postcards from the post office box located in the cavern. After we used up all of our spelunking energy, we decided ...

    Day 2

    Today the sun is shining and the sky is blue. We are heading off to Carlsbad Caverns today. These are underground caverns that were created millions of years ago. They were once part of an underground sea that once covered this entire area. As the water drained the caverns were formed. These caverns go 750 feet underground and are massive. They have an elevator to take ...

Pecos is famous for holding the first ever rodeo, as well as being the home of the famous Judge Roy Bean. A saloonkeeper with no legal training, Bean was appointed justice of the peace and ...

    ... I was imagining. We passed through to begin one of the longest 170 miles of road EVER! Desolate. One long deserted stretch after another. We had 3/4 tank of gas at the beginning, and with about 20 miles left, we were wishing the bullets we were sweating was actually some petro. The gas needle was on red for a long time! We made it and a sigh of relief is an understatement. The good times are rolling.

    When we arrived in Carlsbad, we were rather unceremoniously greeted by an enormous Walmart, and a less-than-picturesque KOA campground. But given our late arrival and the cold temperatures, camping wasn't an option and convenience was our primary concern. Rest assured, the main attraction (the Caverns) more than made up for it. Around 1898, a 16-year old cowboy named Jim White noticed a huge plume of smoke rising out of the ground. Upon ...
