Carlsbad Caverns NP offering ranger-guided night hikes
Carlsbad Caverns National Park is offering ranger-guided night hikes today and Saturday.
The hike is 1.5 miles roundtrip through the Chihuahuan Desert.
“You will explore a variety of topics related to darkness at Carlsbad Caverns National Park,” the national park said.
The program is free on a first-come, first served basis with a maximum of 12 participants for each program. One must be at least 8 years old to attend.
Participants are asked to bring a red-light flashlight or red-light handlamp to preserve your night vision.
“We will provide red-light headlamps if you do not have one,” officials said.
The program could be canceled, weather-permitting.
