Cave system @ Carlsbad Caverns National Park

Exploring the subterrain wonders of New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns National Park is a massively underrated experience for that deserves your consideration as your next National Park trip. Above ground you can take in all the sights of the Chihuahuan Desert including high ancient sea ledges, deep rocky canyons, flowering cactus, and desert wildlife but what really steals the show are treasures hidden beneath the surface. Carlsbad Caverns is home to more than 119 caves created by limestone dissolved by sulfuric acid (one chamber is 250 feet high).
