Kartchner Caverns, Az

Kartchner Caverns SP, Az
Sunrise at our campsite.
We took the Rotunda/Throne Room Cave Tour this morning. This cave is pristine. It only opened for tours in 1999 and they seem to have the impact of visitors minimized appropriately. Even so, it is an excellent tour with possibly the best decoration condition of any cave I've ever seen. Unfortunately, nothing can be taken in to the cave, including cameras, so no pictures. Here is a nice like to the Friends of Kartchner Cave website with a good presentation on the cave.
After the tour we headed out and stopped somewhere a ways East of Benson, Az to see the "Thing". There is a small cheap museum at a gift shop / Dairy Queen that has a "mummy" called the Thing. It's worth the $1 and provides a good stretch.
We continued on to Las Cruces, Nm stopping for the night at Wally World (Walmart's).
We had a very nice dinner at the barBQ restaurant next door.
