Whenever we have visitors from outside of West Texas, we have to show them the sights. Wednesday, we went back to New Mexico. This time we took the nature path into Carlsbad Caverns. That means we had to descend 750 feet into the caverns on foot. Thankfully, we could take the elevator back up because the whole thing freaked Jyly out this time. After the caverns, we went to the Living desert and Gardens. What a great place! It's kind of like a zoo but on a nature trail. Jyly loves zoo's!
Yesterday, we went to Belmorhea State Park. We renewed our National Parks pass here because it is worth many returns. The attraction is a giant spring fed pool. It is 40 feet deep at it's deepest and crystal clear. The only downfall is the algae on the bottom and all the little fish you get to swim with. None of that bothered my little fish!
