Decided to read this because we were going there. It probably would’ve been a little better to read before we went, just so I could more easily put names/ideas to what I was seeing...but it’s still very interesting. I’d like to see more of the park, especially a bat flight...but I doubt I can deal with the caving. It’s always just interesting to see an inside perspective from a Ranger.

Looking forward to a trip to Carlsbad and Guadalupe National Parks after reading Thompson book.

Interesting topic, but a bit too much purple prose for my taste.

Such a fun read, not only about caving in Carlsbad, but also a bit of what it is actually like to be a Park Ranger.
