Two days one night short trip
Two days one night; the most economical way to see these two locations on a short trip. Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands New Mexico. Photo of men in Carlsbad at morning coffee meeting. More photos to follow. For details see:http://www. nps. gov/whsa/index. htm and http://www. nps. gov/cave/index. htm
THE ELEVATOR IS BROKEN ONLY WALK IN VISTS AVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Drive to Carlsbad Caverns arriving before 1100AM. Visit the Caverns during the afternoon and see the bat flight in the evening. Drive to Alamogordo arriving there late. (Hotels in Carlsbad are booked solid with oil field workers because of the boom). I like to get into White Sands as early as possible because the light is best. If you are a keen photographer you might want to stay her all day and shoot in the late afternoon and then make the drive to Santa Fe or Albuquerque arriving very late. ( 4hour drive).
