What Lies Beneath: In the New Mexico Badlands, a path carved by lava leads visitors from the Bandera Volcano to a cave where temperatures never reach above 31 degrees Fahrenheit. The ice floor is 20 feet thick and gives off an eerie green glow from the algae beneath.
Evoking the South Dakota Badlands, this New Mexico preserve has a stark, austere beauty. This park’s rugged volcanic terrain means there are few actual trails; stop by the ranger station to pick up a map.
