The (other) land down under!

After camping in Brantley we started to make our way towards Carlsbad on Sunday morning.  Before hitting the caverns we stopped at the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park.  It was similar to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.  There was a lot of animal features and well signposted botanical exhibits- again integrated into the landscape.  They had a nice Mexican gray wolf habitat, which is a very rare feature; as these guys are almost completely extinct.

After the Living Desert we moved onto Carlsbad Caverns.  It was absolutely amazing!  We have both visited caves before, and wholly agree that there is nothing like Carlsbad Caverns.  We were down in the cave for three hours.  There was just so much to see.  The pics below, which are a tiny sampling of those taken, really do not do justice to this natural wonder.  

When we'd had enough caving.  We moved onto Texas!  Spending the night in the very pretty Guadalupe Mountains National Park.  xxx

  1. European roulette is essentially the most played version each at bodily casinos and on on-line platforms. Players prefer this version to the American variant since it has a magnified chance of winning. 점보카지노 That’s the first reason we advise novice players to play this roulette version. Martingale System– Probably essentially the most commonly used method in roulette is the Martingale strategy. You’ll be required to double your earlier stake each time you lose.
