    • Santa Fe to Las cruces

      We want to get from Santa fe to Las cruces by public transpotattion then hire a car . We are nervous about driving out of albuquerque which I guess would be easiest as we could get the shuttle to ABQ. Are we being over anxious .?
      Happy New Year to all.

      Cave Exploring in Carlsbad Caverns

      by TLippard Online Now Sep 2, 2013 at 10:15 PM

      Hi. My wife and I are soon to be traveling to CC to do some of the ranger guided cave tours. We anticipate 5 or 6 of the tours, over a 3 or 4 day period. Some will be the easy ones, all the way up to the Strenuous tours. My question to any of you experienced cave explorers... Is it feasible to do say a moderate and a Strenuous cave tour in a single day (time permitting)? What are the pitfalls? We are both in better than average shape and being on our feet for 8-10 hours a day isn't a problem.

      Also, given the White Nose Syndrome issue with the bats, how do we go about making sure our gear is cleaned? We're getting helmets, lamps, etc. from the ranger, but what about our clothes, shoes, flashlights, kneepads? Is there a washout area or what do we do?

      Thanks a bunch in advance. Any other pertinent information you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

    • Baby Strollers?

      by JonSmith123 Online Now Apr 12, 2011 at 3:11 PM

      I was wondering if the caves were open to people with baby strollers. Not sure how the navigation is down there so any help would be appreciated.

    • June trip to the Caverns

      by VIKTOY Online Now Jan 31, 2011 at 1:56 PM

      The Caverns are on my wishlist. We are driving from Portland,OR area to Reno middle of June with a group and thinking of keeping going to Carlsbad. What are the roads like (we are driving a Corvette) and the safety of leaving it unattended while looking at the caverns. Is the Best Western in Whites City OK?

      Best to see the bat flying in or out?

      by beatchfre Online Now Mar 8, 2006 at 12:04 PM

      Hi there,

      I'm trying to plan a little 2/3-day road trip from Santa Fe -> Roswell -> Carlsbad Caverns -> White Sands with my parents (from Scotland). I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best time to go to caverns i.e. should I go to see the bats flying INTO the cave at dawn, or OUT of the cave at dusk.

      We will be going sometime between the 5th to 12th of June. Just trying to plan an itinerary.

      Thanks in advance for any replies!


      PS: Anyone know of any events going on in Alomagordo, Roswell, or Carlsbad in the above timeframe?
