Carlsbad Caverns New Mexico
Join us on an amazing trek through the Chihuahuan Desert of the Guadalupe Mountains (we learned that the mountain in our video to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico. We took an elevator to go underground and explored the Big Room, strolling in mostly silence passing beautiful rock formations like the Bottomless Pit, Giant Dome, Painted Grotto, and Rock of Ages. We visited during winter, when all the bats had left the caves and migrated south, but we enjoyed nature at its most amazing!

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Carlsbad Caverns National Park is an American national park in the Guadalupe Mountains of southeastern New Mexico. The primary attraction of the park is the show cave, Carlsbad Cavern. Visitors to the cave can hike in on their own via the natural entrance or take an elevator from the visitor center.
The park entrance is located on US Highway 62/180, approximately 18 miles (29 km) southwest of Carlsbad, New Mexico. Carlsbad Caverns National Park participates in the Junior Ranger Program. The park has two entries on the National Register of Historic Places: The Caverns Historic District and the Rattlesnake Springs Historic District. Approximately two thirds of the park has been set aside as a wilderness area, helping to ensure no future changes will be made to the habitat.
Carlsbad Cavern includes a large limestone chamber, named simply the Big Room, which is almost 4,000 feet (1,220 m) long, 625 feet (191 m) wide, and 255 feet (78 m) high at its highest point. The Big Room is the fifth largest chamber in North America and the twenty-eighth largest in the world.

Obama talks climate change on Yosemite visit

Yosemite National Park, California - 18 June 2016
1. US President Barack Obama approaching lectern
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President:
How gorgeous is this day? (Crowd: 'Yes, we can, yes, we can) Yes, we can enjoy this. This has to be the perfect way to spend Father's Day and Father's Day Weekend. You know, yesterday our family checked out Carlsbad Caverns down in New Mexico.
3. Obama at lectern
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President:
There's something sacred about this place and I suppose that's why the walls of this valley were referred to as 'Cathedral Walls' because here at Yosemite (National Park) we connect - not just with our own spirit but with something greater. It's almost like the spirit of America itself is right here.
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President:
In August, we celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the National Park Service. It's a system that includes more than 400 sites, from Yellowstone (National Park) to Denali (National Park), to Gettysburg, to Seneca Falls. Since I took office, I have been proud to build on the work of all those giants who came before me to support our natural resources and to help all Americans get out into the great outdoors.
8. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President:
Make no mistake. Climate change is no longer just a threat. It's already a reality. I was talking to some of the rangers here. Here in Yosemite, meadows are drying out, bird ranges are shifting farther northward; alpine mammals like Pikas are being forced further upslope to escape higher temperatures. Yosemite's largest glacier - once a mile wide - is now almost gone.
10. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President:
As we look ahead in the coming years and decades, rising temperatures could mean no more glaciers at Glacier National Park; no more Joshua trees at Joshua Tree National Park. Rising seas could destroy vital ecosystems in the Everglades and at some point could even threaten icons like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
12. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, US President:
We've made good strides. We've jump-started a clean energy revolution, we're reducing carbon pollution, we're preserving landscapes, we're rallying the world to take climate change together. But we've gotta do a lot more. And on this issue, unlike a lot of issues, there's such a thing as being too late.
13. Obama walking away from stage after speech
US President Barack Obama said on Saturday that climate change is already damaging America's national parks, with rising temperatures causing Yosemite's meadows to dry out and raising the prospect of a glacier preserve without its glaciers someday.
At the California park, where Obama was spending the weekend with his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha, the president also talked about how a rabbit-like animal known as a pika is being forced further upslope at Yosemite to escape the heat.
Obama spoke near Yosemite's Sentinel Bridge, where views of Half Dome, a well-known rock formation in the park, and Yosemite Falls created a picturesque background behind him under a sunny, blue sky.
After a night with his family in a rented cabin in the popular park, Obama stuck to his usual routine by rising early Saturday and heading to a recreation centre on the grounds for his daily gym workout.
Obama's weekend in the great outdoors was planned to encourage more people to appreciate and visit many of the nation's parks.
The National Park Services manages more than 400 sites around the country and celebrates its centennial in August.
