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.
The Ice Caves and Bandera Volcano are located at 12000 Ice Caves Road near Grants. It is open daily between March 1 and November 1. You can find details about admission, hours of operation, and more by visiting their website or Facebook page.
