What: Bats leaving bat cave at Ruby.
When: July 7th a Saturday at 11:38 AM
Where: Meet at the Long Horn for lunch
Why: Cuz, Carlsbad is too far away to watch Bats fly out of a hole.
We will meet up at the Longhorn restaurant at the Amado junction across from the Cow Palace. Have a little lunch, then head out to Arivaca. From there take the back way into the Yellow Jacket and possibly a bonus points hill. Maybe some of you remember from the last time..
From there travel back and go towards the Arivaca lake but turn off into a canyon, valley I bet no ones been down. It comes out at Ruby. I was hoping to get there around 4pm so those of you that want to tour the town can. The keeper of the gate will close it at 6pm sharp for we have to be in before then.
The guy will tell us then what time to expect the bats to fly away. Right now its between 6:45 and 7:45pm. After they go, we go. You will take the main road back to Arivaca then down to I-19.
There are fees involved. Anywhere from 5-15$ a head. The price is going to be determined by him when we get there. 15$ for the full tour of town 5$ for to just watch the bats.... I think he will be in the middles somewhere as we can have a nice short look around maybe dunk out toes in the lake ect. He has some info on the different buildings that are left and a very good book on Ruby. Theres so much history there.
Anyway, there you have it. Lets me know who is interested in going!!!
