Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico


Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico was an unexpected treat. It was established as a National Park in 1923 and has 110 caves, including one that is 120 miles long. I hope these photos give you an idea of what we saw, although I know they don’t come close to showing the natural wonder and beauty of this place.

  7. Hi Susan- Thanks! The lighting is quite subtle, unlike some other caves I’ve seen. These photos came out more colorful than the caves actually were, and I am not sure why– no flash either.

  8. The images are amazing. Are the caves lit like that?

Love to hear what you think...
