Day 4 Carlsbad Caverns National Park

On the surface, the desert of New Mexico can look like a pretty barren place. But beneath the surface of Carlsbad Caverns National Park it's a completely different story.

Welcome to a place that the locals call 'city different', where New Mexico's artists and culture-buffs flourish under the hot desert sun and year-round blue skies.
