Pictures can't do justice to the amazing spaces and shapes you see deep in Carlsbad Caverns. But it made an impression on us -- 30 years after we last saw it. This time, we hiked down and somehow that lent more realism to it, deepened the experience, as if we were damned and going down to Hades, to (as Em called it) The Grand Canyon of the Underworld.
