    Rollin,

    A little more info on Carlsbad Caverns. Another reason I wanted to go to Carlsbad was to watch the bats leave the bat cave. The bats leave the cave just after sunset. When they leave it can be over 100,000 bats leaving the cave at one time. I think it was about a 1400 mile drive to get to Carlsbad from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We went to see the caves and then went to the bat cave entrance and waited for the sun to go down........



    ...... but as we were waiting a storm rolled in.





    The Park Rangers made us evacuate the park. We never got to see even one bat. I guess I'll have to go back someday!!!

    I'm taking 9 weeks this summer and making a loop around the US.

    Basically- NYC, VA, GA, TN, OK, NM, AZ, CA, WA, BC, ID, MT, MN, IL, OH, NY, PA, NJ, NY

    We are going to be visiting various family and friends. We also plan on seeing popular spots like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone, in addition to unique places like graveyards in TN/VA where hundreds of my family members are buried and also places where TV shows are/were filmed (The Office, Men in Trees, Dark Angel, etc).

    Very nice post. I sat here and felt like I was with you on the trip. Thanks for the pictures. Got me all inspired. But have to wait until kids get a bit older.

    I know what you mean....my kids are grown and on their own. And I have an understanding wife that lets me go in these trips. As long as I buy her stuff on the trip she understands. :)

    One other area that I thought people might enjoy is Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. It is in the southwestern corner of Arizona right on the Mexican border. These pictures are also from our 2007 Jeep road trip.

    There are 26 species of cactus in this area. I found it very interesting that with all the people in the US there are still places that you can go where there is nobody. There was nobody else here except for me and my wife.

    I did enjoy seeing this area. They did have an area for camping but bring everything that you will need.

    Default Great Reflection on the Jeep's hood

    In that photo (above) taken through the Jeep's windshield, I love that reflection of the plants on the top of the truck's hood.

    Nice photos!
