JiJi is visiting Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico, USA
The Carlsbad Caverns are famous for the thousands of bats that leave each evening and return every morning. In fact, it was by following the bats that the caves were first discovered over 100 years ago. If you visit in the morning, you can watch them dive from thousands of feet in the air and then flap their wings to reach their roosts in the cave. Parts of the caves were explored using balloons, Scientists tied balloons to a camera so it would float up to the hard to reach sections. They even named one of the rooms they discovered the “Balloon Ballroom”!
The February Postcard message will be posted in March.
