  • mali.mishThe kids hesitated as they walked into the dark natural entrance of the cavern. After adjusting to the darkness, they explored the entire 2.5 mile loop underground, determined to complete the scavenger hunt of the cavern's features in order to complete their Junior Ranger booklets. After a rewarding elevator ride back to the surface, they earned Junior Ranger badge number 111 and an ice cream treat.

  • bdpearlI visited Carlsbad at age 10 and am having very mixed feelings about this photo, because it was about the coolest thing I'd ever seen but also I accidentally took a picture (with my disposable camera 🤓) with flash on, and a ranger yelled at me, and I cried. 😂😭
  • mali.mish@bdpearl And you grew up to become a badass with a camera. 💪 Thanks for sharing that story. ❤
  • bdpearl@mali.mish yes, one who never uses flash! 😂 💗💗💗
