After seeing Guadalupe Mountains, I drove to Carlsbad Caverns, which I had wanted to see for a long time.  It is a beautiful cave, but I wish I could have walked back up and out rather than having to take the elevator!  There are some hiking trails nearby as well.  I had no idea the number of national parks with caves.  There are Carlsbad and Mammoth; there are also Wind Cave and Great Basin NP’s Lehman Caves.  I’m not much of a spelunker, but the cave parks are as interesting as are any of the others!
