Today, my mom wanted to go to the world famous Carlsbad Caverns. We drove about 275 miles yesterday to Carlsbad. Before we went I heard that the caverns are just a huge cave system that was found by settlers who saw thousands of Mexican bats flying out all at the same time. When we got there, you couldn’t see the mouth of the cave so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We went into the visitors center, got our tickets, and headed down to the mouth. So, you walk down the natural opening in the cave, and your elevation changes about 750 feet. What was going through my mind the whole time while we were in there was, would cell phones work 750 feet underground? Never got a chance to prove that but my guess was no.
