Per National Park Service's request, I didn't include clips from outside of the cave which might reveal the cave's location to the public. The cave is located several miles away from Carlsbad cavern. We had to drive in a dirt road following the park ranger for about 10 minutes. After parking our cars, we had to hike for about 30 minutes into the canyon where the cave was located at.

The whole tour lasted for about 4 hours. However, I have only included selected clips in this video. There were several passageways inside of the cave that I would have liked to film, but had to turn the camera off and focus on my movements in order to avoid destroying cave formations or falling/sliding into a ditch. I installed the camera on my helmet with the help of a headband. The camera had to go to the left of the light, meaning that the lens was titled toward my left, rather than the front which is what I would have preferred. Because of that, a lot of the footage recorded were of the walls on my left side and turned out to be useless. In the later parts of the tour, I tried to hold the camera on my hand and film.
