The Fairytale Boardwalk In New Mexico That Stretches As Far As The Eye Can See

While New Mexico’s natural beauty is jaw-dropping, it can also be rugged and unforgiving. Such is the case with the Malpais Lava Flow, which occurred thousands of years ago in the area that’s now the Valley of Fires Recreation Area. The lava flow and its surrounding landscape are incredible sights to see, but the lava can be both slippery, and very sharp. To safely see this natural wonder, take the Valley of Fires Nature Trail.
