Our next stop in the Guadalupe Mountains was Carlsbad Caverns. We arrived at the 7500′ high entrance and took a 754 foot elevator ride down to the “Big Room”. The image above is of an alcove off the main trail within the Big Room. The Carlsbad FAQ says that there are more than 100 rooms discovered so far in the Caverns. The photo was taken handheld using cave lighting, a fast lens and high (1600) ISO.
