A couple of soft drinks were also not accounted for in the gift shop.
Overall, it was just a day of chaos at CCNP.
Meanwhile, the bats are doing just fine.
Perhaps the remains of the hikers will be discovered one day and they'll have notes in their pockets apologizing for starting the blaze?
Presumptuous much?

Stella Davis loves it when she gets to quote people talking about "...the big one."
It starts her mind racing back to all those years ago.

I hope the gift shop will be protected. I enjoy many of those items to send to relatives at important milestones in life.

Obviously Carlsbad Caverns aren't going to be lost.

If the area is thinned out a little bit, a few employees can be let go and the federal deficit can be reduced.

There is a silver lining in reductions in force for us Tea Baggers. Go get 'em Michelle Bachman!
