Hello again I just want to say one thing Spurs did great and they'll get them next time. Today we went back to the caverns but instead we walked 750ft down through the bat cave and it smelled really bad. When we were done we ate at Lotaburger. When we sat down we heard "Kaboom" and realized there was a thunderstorm. It started pouring and then we …

... greater because the big cave as it is called was spectacular and its size very impressive but having been dropped down there by a fast elevator would definitely have substantially diminished the greatness of the Carlbad caverns.
