Early this morning we returned to Carlsbad Caverns and this time we entered through the Natural Entrance, past the Bat Flight Amphitheater where we remember watching the bat flight at dusk one evening in September 1974. No bats there today though. They’ve gone south to Mexico for the winter. Today we opted for the ranger led  King’s Palace Tour. The ranger embarrassed us by making a big deal out of the fact that we’d been there to celebrate our first anniversary and were back to celebrate our thirty-fifth!

    What, no wild cave tour?! I bet Carlsbad would be an awesome cave to explore on one’s stomach.

    You should have just grinned when the ranger mentioned thirty five years.
