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 a short trip to Guadalupe Peak in Guadalupe Mountains National Park (about 1h 50 min away). Next up on the itinerary: Head underground at Big Room, contemplate the waterfront views at Green Lake, explore the striking landscape at Lion's Tail, and get a dose of the wild on Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour.
