Carlsbad Caverns: Our Labor Day Field Trip

Even though it is a state away, Carlsbad Caverns is a day trip for us. We were supposed to go camping on Labor Day weekend, but weather changed our plans. So we gave the kids four options of what to do instead. Those options were, literally, North, South, East, or West. The kids chose West.

At the opening of the Caverns. This was actually after we had come back out. They don't even look tired!!!

I love looking at all the formations in the Cavern. They look like tiny scenes from dramatic books.

This looked like a big, creepy idol from Bible times.

They were looking at the ceiling, which looked like cirrus clouds. 

It was a very fun day, even though we were exhausted after walking downhill all that way and then standing in line for 45 minutes waiting on the elevator to take us back up.
