Yes, that is snow on the Jeep.After breakfast we had to go to town to do some laundry. Then we headed out to visit the Carlsbad Caverns.
The Bats are vacationing in Mexico and won't return till the spring. For now there are Cave Swallows that fly around at the entrance to the cave. Cover your head!!!
We entered by the Natural entrance.
Some flowers at the entrance.
These are the Swallows at the top of the entrance opening.
The Cave entrance.
It's amazing how large the formations get.
Stalactites and Stalagmites
When these two touch, they will then be called a column.
These are Stalactites with Popcorn on the ends.
A large Stalagmite
It was difficult taking pictures in the cave, the flash would change to effect.
Another huge Stalagmite behind Joyce
Looking deep into a section of the cave.
