A Few Essentials
Luggage and bags: Bring a small flashlight. It will really help show additional detail on some of the formations.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes with good traction are a must on the descent and ascent out of the natural entrance.
Photo Equipment: Taking a picture in Carlsbad Caverns challenges all of your photographic abilities. Make sure your camera batteries are fully charged and watch out for bounce back from park lit cave formations.
Photo Equipment: ( Bring what you need plus extra film or memory cards )
Miscellaneous: Generally packing for a hike is common sense ~ but sometimes even the most common items are overlooked. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes ... there is a lot of walking. Also, if you have medical issues, be sure you travel with your meds and a buddy! Bring water.
