We spent a VERY windy and dusty two nights at the Carlsbad RV and Campground with the tent tied to Paul’s car to make sure the thing didn’t end up on the nearby highway. The campground had free wi-fi, an indoor pool, and a sweet game room so we didn’t complain.
On Thursday we hit Carlsbad Caverns for the basic tour since all the special tours were already booked. We spent about 2-3 hours underground then headed out to Sitting Bull Falls. Sitting Bull was interesting for the fact that it is about 30 miles away from everything but with excellent parking and picnicking facilities and a $5 entry fee. There were a few trails here but we were tired from our backpacking the previous day and elected to only hike up to the top of the falls (about 170 feet high).
