The Land of Enchantment is full of natural beauty, but some of our most incredible natural phenomenons often hide beneath the surface in caves deep below ground. Every evening after learning about these peculiar animals from an informed park ranger, you can see one of our most recognized caves erupt with thousands of bats as they take off overhead. This astounding one-of-a-kind experience is truly unlike anything you’ve ever seen, and it will take your breath away.

Have you ever experienced a bat flight? What did you think? Tell us all about it in the comments, and don’t forget to share photos from your experiences with us in our New Mexico Nature Lovers Facebook group, or tag us on Instagram by tagging #onlyinnewmexico for a chance to be featured!

For more experiences that you can only have in the Land of Enchantment, you must stargaze at this pitch black park right here in your state.
