New Mexico has some great places to visit. In the southern part White Sands National Monument and Carlsbad Caverns are at the top of the list
The white gypsum sands seem to go on for ever.
Coupled with a bright blue sky makes for great photo opportunities.
Occasionally you will see some others playing in the sand.
Don’t forget to bring a big piece of cardboard with you to
slid down the dunes. Or if you have a snow saucer,
it works great as well.
When it gets too hot on the dunes you can always head over to Carlsbad Caverns National Park to cool off.
Don’t worry about having a long walk as there is an elevator that takes you from the above ground visitor center
straight down into the caverns.
Looks like a gigantic tooth to me.
Some beautiful “soda straw” formations.
And even a pool to take a dip in. No, I think that would be frowned upon by the Rangers.
Officially I believe this is called the “Chinese Hat” Unofficially it is known as the “Breast of Venus”
You can spend many hours in the caverns. There are easy walks and even wheelchair routes. he area at the bottom of the elevator contains a gift shop and restaurant. You can also take guided spelunking adventures where you get wet and muddy. Its up to you but the Carlsbad Caverns are a sight you do not want to miss.
