In Carlsbad
Carlsbad Caverns
Beauty and Wonder; Above and Below

High rising ancient sea ledges, deep rocky canyons, cactus, grasses and thorny shrubs – who would imagine the hidden treasures deep beneath this rugged landscape? Secretly tucked below the desert terrain are more than 119 known caves – all formed when sulfuric acid dissolved the surrounding limestone.

In Alamagordo
White Sands National Monument
Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world’s great natural wonders – the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world’s largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Monument preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.
