A Trip Inside New Mexico’s Frozen Cave Is Positively Surreal
The weather may be starting to warm up around the state but did you know you can experience the chilly winter temperatures year-round in one quiet location here in New Mexico? That’s right! It’s actually a surreal sight when you consider parts of the state can easily reach triple-digit temperatures in the middle of summer.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
