281/365: Cave Walkabout

Project 365

Friday • October 8, 2010


One of the coolest adventures we enjoyed on our road trip was a to take a walkabout in Carlsbad Caverns. Now you know I've been wanting to see bats on this trip and I was denied everywhere I went! Including here! Which is why I made the 80 mile drive to Austin. So, we missed the sunset bat departure ... twice ... and arrived 10 minutes late for the morning return. We did see some of them return (though not the most impressive part); and we definitely heard them! Very freakin' cool my friends! If you like bats that is!


So here is a small series of photos from the day. As you can imagine, photographing in the cave was a challenge. I took a lot of 'junk' photos, hastily sent to the recycle bin! But amongst all the photos were a few gems. If I hadn't brought my tripod, these photos wouldn't have even been possible!
