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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Guadalupe Mountains National Park (Pinery Trail & Permian Reef Geology Trail), Runyan Ranches (in Mayhill) and Guadalupe Mountains National Park (in Salt Flat). Next up on the itinerary: Head underground at Big Room, take in the dramatic natural features at Lion's Tail, identify plant and animal life at Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour, and explore the activities along Green Lake.

To find photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park trip planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 98°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
