10/24 Kartchner Caverns to Las Cruces, NM

No photos today.  Yesterday I camped at Kartchner Caverns State Park, just southeast of Tucson.  This series of caverns was discovered in 1974, but kept hidden until the two cavers were able to convince the governor to buy the land from the owners and protect this "wet" cave.  It took an additional 14 years to built an entrance and set up environmental systems to prevent contamination from visitors that would damage the cave.  Check it out here:

Anyway, it was a nice park and the campground was very nice, with large, level spots.  Heard more coyote howls during the night.

Left this morning for Las Cruces, NM, on my continuing way east.
