The Bat Flight - is not exciting...sorry.

We read about the nightly bat flight in Austin and made sure to hike out there to check it out. Honestly, it looked like a big swarm of insects filling the sky - not exactly exciting.
 

Didn't really wear the right shoes for this event.



 
Downtown Austin is really nice though, and we dined at a swank restaurant after the bats let us down.

We felt kind of the same at the Carlsbad Caverns in NM. Not quite the millions of bats erupting from the cave all at once as we'd imagined, but more like a few at a time - but it went on forever! At least you got a nice meal out at a swank restaurant afterwards to soften the disappointment! :D

The only time I have ever seen bats was when we would travel from Cali to Mexico by car (2 day trip), they are amazing.. but only when they are out a couple at a time.. I hope you have better luck when you get another opertunity to see bats again

@the Insomniac - HA - I've seen sunset photos of the Carlsbad Caverns bats - not sure if we'll bother with those bats now that we've seen these. ha ha.

@lefroggy - I probably wouldn't want to get too close to a bat - I'm content with the bat jewelry I have!
