The canyons, cacti, and thorny bushes of the southern New Mexico desert hide one of the U.S.'s great subterranean geological wonders, Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
Change things up with these side-trips from Carlsbad Caverns National Park: Street Sculptures (in Artesia) and Guadalupe Peak (in Guadalupe Mountains National Park). There's much more to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Big Room, explore the activities along Rattlesnake Springs, and explore the striking landscape at Giant Dome.
