Carlsbad Caverns National Park & Roswell NM

Monday, November 6, 2017

Another good breakfast, using up the last of our eggs and cheese. Yum!

We drove to Carlsbad Caverns National Park and opted for the self-guided tour, starting at the mouth of the cave and hiking down 80 stories to the Big Room, then hiking/walking that area. In all, we walked 2.5 miles. Thank goodness for the elevators going up!

From the Caverns we drove north to Roswell, New Mexico – yup – Alien Conspiracy Capitol of the World. We had lunch at Sonic, then went to the International UFO Museum and read up on the crash of July 1947 and all the attended news, reports, articles, pictures, and conspiracies. The museum also had some fun items, and other UFO information. We really got our geek on.

When we got back to our campgrounds, I stopped in the store and purchased more propane for our camp stove, and took a picture of the front of their store. Ha, ha.
