On the way to Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico

The caves of Carlsbad Caverns National Park contain sites with exceptional natural beauty. The park’s most famous cave, Carlsbad Cavern, is over 1,000 feet deep and currently contains 30 miles of mapped passages. The Big Room of Carlsbad Cavern is the largest underground chamber in the United States. Massive stalagmites, stalactites, columns, flowstone, travertine, and cave “popcorn” decorate the room. The park’s largest wildlife attraction is a colony of Mexican free-tailed bats, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, that live in the cave. The colony spends six months each summer in the cave where their young are born. (https://www.nps.gov/cave/learn/nature/upload/research.pdf)
