Below are some photos from Bat Dude's trip to

Kartchner Caverns State Park

Map of how to get to Kartchner Caverns State Park.

Kartchner Caverns State Park is 9 1/2 miles South of Interstate 10 on State Route 90

Here is the entrance sign on the way to the Discovery Center.

All the walkways are landscaped with all local desert plants.

Here we are walking to the Discovery Center to to check in for our tour. We saved the $6 parking fee by buying our tickets in advance. They don't allow cameras on the tour so we will put the camera in a locker for now. Below is a film taken inside the cave.



After a tour of the caverns, we had lunch at the "Bat Cave Cafe" with Annette and Charley. They make a fantastic Pizza here.

A view of the Humming Bird Gardens while we sat out on the patio for lunch.

There are trails in the hills behind the Discovery Center you can hike that are all part of Kartchner Caverns  State Park.
