Holy bug zappers, Batman!

Well, my vacation is officially over and on Monday, I found myself back in the real world fixing all the problems that didn't get fixed while I was on vacation. But, I have to tell you about our trip to the Bat Cave at the North Sauta Wildlife Refuge in Scottsboro, AL.


There were so many bats coming from the cave. It was awesome!!!! There is an observation deck there if you don't want to get too close, but, my daughter looked at her mommy and said, "Mommy, I want to go down dere." So... into the mouth of the cave we went and this is the view.

One of the little factoids presented by the volunteer that was there was that these 200,000 plus bats would eat more than a ton of insects on this single night. WOW! I need to move this cave to my back yard!
