In New Mexico, Adventure Awaits Around Every Corner



From natural wonder to historical mysteries, this legendary landscape has it all


Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano


This lava tube cave situated on the Continental Divide was formed by the Bandera Volcano more than 3,000 years ago. Inside, temperatures don’t rise above 31 degrees, and ice takes on a green hue thanks to the presence of Arctic algae. New Mexico’s “Land of Fire and Ice” is a unique natural wonder.

Cimarron Canyon State Park, Maxwell National Wildlife Refuge, Sugarite Canyon State Park.

More than 500 birds exist on New Mexico’s roster of bird species. That’s a lot to spot. Naturally, birding is entrenched in New Mexico culture, and there are dozens of parks and wildlife refuges to capture glimpses of birds in their majestic habitats. These refuges in the state’s Northeast make great places to start.
