A journey to the center of the Earth - Carlsbad Caverns National Park by Mohamed Boraie

In June 2014, my wife and I planned to take 2 month off from everything and go around the US on a road trip. We started inVirginia and we drove down to Florida, then West to New Orleans ( previous blog post ). From New Orleans we drove to Austin, Texas. Austin is surprisingly a very cool and hip city with amazing food trucks (breakfast burrito!) and lively music scene.

From Austin, Texas we drove to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico. Through out my travels, I have never seen anything similar to the Carlsbad Caverns in terms of the geological landscape. It is just fascinating!

Cool Fact about the Carlsbad Caverns: Some of the movie shoots from Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959 film) was filmed there. 

Enjoy the pictures and till next blog post!
