Carlsbad Caverns no.194 - Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico - August 20, 2009
Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico - August 20, 2009

Wow, I can’t believe I was here on this date in 2009. I had always wanted to go to Carlsbad Caverns ever since my family drove past it when I was 13, on the way to California, on a family vacation. My parents said, “We will stop on the way back.” We never did.

Forty-seven years later, I finally made it.
