We got up early, well early for Kathryn anyway, and headed over to Carlsbad Caverns. This is their off-season and we were also the first ones into the cavern for the day. This was a great time to visit since there weren’t any crowds. We entered via the natural entrance and walked down to Big Room.
After our cavern visit, we continued heading west along 82 to Alamogordo. This took us through Lincoln National Forest.This was a nice drive that took us through some mountains
where we got to see some snow alongside the road.
But thankfully, our destination is warm enough that there won’t be any snow to contend with. We’re spending this week in Oliver Lee Memorial State Park just south of Alamogordo.
It looks like we’re going to enjoy it here.
