North America 2009


Well. At some point I had to break the Southern Hemisphere tradition and stick to the north, and thus travelling in June-Augustish.
And at some point I had to break the Eastern Hemisphere tradition and head west. And thus, USA/CAN, here I come!

Deep deep deep underground lie the Carlsbad Caverns. Stalagmites and stalactites intersect majestic cave halls and offer a refreshing cool contrast to the pressuring heat of Texas. And where there are caves, there are bats. The up to a million bats emerging simultaneously from a cave opening at sunset is supposedly a remarkable sight. I had half expected to see something similar to the smoke monster in Lost, but no such effect was to be found. Big ouverture, small show.
