Your calves might hurt the next day but it's so worth it. the cave just goes on and on. amazing formations all the way. set your camera to dusk/ dawn without flash and the photos turn out great.

Great desert landscape experience. There is much more to Carlsbad than the cavern.

Pretty easy all through the caverns. The rock formations are spectacular. Definitely a once in the lifetime experience

How majestic!
