What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Virtual Thing of the Day: 4/5/20

6 Comments

What I find myself missing most of all right now is the great outdoors. I’m trying to be good and stay inside except when absolutely necessary, but I find myself longing for the days when being outside didn’t feel like a bad idea. So I’ve been spending some time thinking about places I want someday to visit. Today’s thing is just one of those places.

Featuring more than 100 caves, Carlsbad Caverns in the Guadalupe Mountains of New Mexico is one of the most unique American national parks. The caverns are known for their stunning natural beauty, unusual geologic features, and unique reef and rock formations.

“High ancient sea ledges, deep rocky canyons, flowering cactus, and desert wildlife — treasures above the ground in the Chihuahuan Desert. Hidden beneath the surface are more than 119 caves — formed when sulfuric acid dissolved limestone leaving behind caverns of all sizes.”

  1. While I can’t claim to be a world traveler I have been there. Long time ago. I’m sure it has changed but Wow…it is big and deep too.

  2. I have been there and not that long ago. It is in my top ten places to go visit. You are just by yourself and not a group so you can set your own pace. I highly recommend it. Hal

  3. My husband and son (both rock climbers and adventurers) went with a group they belong to take a special tour of a portion that is closed to the public–you have to actually crawl on your belly and there are places where there’s bodily origami necessary to go forward. I think it’s the Hall of the White Giant. They were very enthused about it. I prefer this version of viewing it, personally–but it IS an amazing cave and I’ve been through the public part of it at least twice.
