Tuesday we left San Antonio for New Mexico! We broke the seven to nine hour drive into two parts (we have kids so sometimes the time driving is way longer than necessary). Doing it this way we were able to explore Carlsbad Caverns on Wednesday because the trip from where we stopped first in New Mexico was only another two to three hour trip.
The time that we left the first Campground in New Mexico was an hour away from the time change so we made it to the caverns just after it opened for the day.
There were a lot of interactive boards and activities for the kids to do in the mueseum. They even had a little cave for the kids to crawl around in. Below are some pictures of the inside of the cave and boards that you can stop and take the time to read if you want. If you start from the top of the cave and work your way all the way down prepare for a three or more hours of exploration.
Below is a link to Carlsbad Caverns. It’ll have the regulations for Covid and it will walk you through what to expect. You can also make reservations if you plan on going.
There was some construction happening on the parking lot.
These picture were taken on my phone. I have more that are on my camera. I will eventually just do a picture blog of each place we went to.
While staying at the Carlsbad KOA we also went and explored Roswell. The roswell Alien museum was an interesting place to visit and explore. Just before you enter roswell there is a welcome sign consisting of a UFO aliens and humans. This was a fun photo of for my kids.. The town itself had green aliens interspersed throughout main street. Most all of the Roswell pictures are on my other camera so I am unable to put them up.
Next week I will be posting our trip from New Mexico to Arizona. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
