Carlsbad Taverns? Sounds fun, but I had to drive.

No, I didn't do any gambling this time. I've been to 2 in New Mexico before, Sunland Park and some other one on my way to Colorado. I live within ten minutes of 2 casinos, and within an hour of five more. So I have plenty to choose from when I feel like donating some cash.

Just my luck I am well within reach of three: Hard Rock Casino (where i won really good last night, helps takes away the pain of the Steelers loss) Sandia, and then Santa Ana... Also visited Hollywood Casino just one time... I lost 10 bucks there then quit on my first visit there but I got a free t-shirt.

Still fun though...

One thing I like about the Wal-Marts here: They carry Steelers stuff. I was like

I walked down through the picture you posted. I figured one hour down and then an elevator ride up. 3 hours later I was still walking around mesmerized. I reached the half way point where you can go up the elevators or walk the 1.25 miles to see the rest of the Big Room, and decided why not stay a while and see the rest.

Sadly, I went too late in the year for the bat flight. That would have been an awesome sight. I rented their audio guide, and found out the bats coming out of the cave was how the caverns were first discovered. There were so many of them, and from a good distance away they looked like smoke. Jim White went to investigate, and realized they were bats.

I leave you with my personal favorite, the boob rock.

lmao!

aso... i see you have done your research.

those foothills are so amazing even w/o the caverns. i often wonder what it mustve been like to be a cowboy following the "smoke" and stumble across that giant hole. (for the religious fanatics, the end is near, so feel free to follow me there to the "bottomless pit").

jim white had some major balls to go pioneering its exploration.

the bat flight is crazy and almost beyond comprehension.

i first went there when i was 3 years old and the memories of that trip are still some of my most vivid and impressionable.

the beautiful and delicious smell of bat guano is one that you will never forget, and it will deliver a flood of dejavu when embraced again.

Violence erupts in Juárez after alleged hit man slain


http://www.elpasotimes.com/juarez/ci_16552140


Quote:
The slaying of an alleged hit man may have set off a string of drug cartel attacks this weekend in a poor neighborhood of southeast Juárez.

Different shootings, including a massacre of seven, and a kidnapping unfolded Saturday in the city plagued by violence. Two of the attacks occurred in Carlos Castillo Peraza, a neighborhood of dirt roads and unfinished homes protected with wood pallets.

Many residents feared the attacks erupted because of the killing of Juan Manuel Escobedo, 42, known in the neighborhood as "El Mouse." Escobedo, who police previously tied to the Juárez drug cartel, is not the suspected target of the recent massacre of 15 people in Horizontes del Sur, also nicknamed "El Mouse."

Gunmen opened fire on Escobedo's SUV on Friday about 8:30 p.m. in the Carlos Castillo Peraza neighborhood.

Police found Escobedo dead on the street next to his yellow SUV with Oklahoma license plates. His passenger, 28-year-old Guillermo Hernández Escamilla, was also wounded and transported to the hospital, where he died an hour later.

...

Only 30 minutes after the massacre, gunmen killed two men and kidnapped another in nearby Parajes de San Juan neighborhood. Police have not identified the men.

Vladimir Tuexi, spokesman for the Chihuahua state attorney general, acknowledged the attacks gained intensity this weekend in those areas of southeast Juárez but said no more information was available.

"Right now, there is nothing we can disclose about what is happening there," he said.

Federal police had arrested Escobedo, the hit man whose killing apparently triggered the violence, earlier this year on suspicion of killing six drug ******* on June 16 at a rehabilitation center and orchestrating 14 murders in 2009.

Police took Escobedo into custody on June 24 after a routine checkpoint in the same neighborhood of Carlos Castillo Peraza. Police found marijuana and weapons in the vehicle Escobedo was driving. That vehicle also had Oklahoma license plates.

It is not clear when, why and under what conditions police released Escobedo. Federal police did not return calls Sunday. [ crooked cops perhaps?]

...


In other parts of Juárez, violence continued during the weekend, killing at least 24 people.

Two police officers were killed Sunday morning in the parking lot of a mall. Blanca Jessica Martínez Puentes, 22, and César Augusto Martínez Hernández, 25, were on duty at the time gunmen attacked them, said Chihuahua state police.

A 45-year-old man, Julián Espinoza Estrada, was stoned to death Sunday in Barreales, a small town in the Juárez Valley.

A dismembered body was found Saturday morning in south Juárez. Police found three black bags: one with the head of an unidentified man, another one with the arms and legs chopped off and a third one with the torso.
