Spelunking

Last weekend a few of us went spelunking at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico.

We went on a tour of Spider Cave. 

This was my first time, and it was AWESOME. We were crawling, climbing, and maneuvering our way through a cave with only a headlamp to guide us.

We hiked down to the cave, crawled our way into it and seen all kinds of really neat formations.

Once we hit the "center" of the tour, we shut our headlamps off. It was so dark you couldn't even see your hand when you put it to your face. It was such an amazing experience.

Definitely something I'd recommend for anyone to try at least once.

I'm excited to go again!
