Travel Guide New Mexico tm Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park , Carlsbad New Mexico
Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park is an indoor/outdoor living museum displaying more than
40 native animal species and hundreds of succulent plants from around the world. While on the 1.3 mile self-guided tour, visitors discover many faces of the Chihuahuan Desert, from sand dunes and pygmy forest to the desert floor. Inside the walk-through aviary, visitors see birds ranging from small songbirds to hawks, eagles, turkeys and owls. Passing visitors also may see a mountain lion or bobcat perched on a rock ledge or peering through the vegetation. Kit fox, badger, mule deer, pronghorn, elk and bison also make their homes at the park. One of the park's highlights are endangered gray wolves. Living Desert participates in the American Zoo and Aquarium Associations Mexican gray wolf Species Survival Program, exchanging wolves with other zoological facilities to help ensure their survival. A visit to Living Desert is incomplete without a stop at the greenhouse, where 100s of succulents and cacti from around the world show their spines and beauty. Barrel cacti and ocotillo are a few of the plants on display.
CROSS-COUNTRY ROAD-TRIP - Part 5 (Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico)
Oh great! Here come those big city folk from New York again! Yes, your Set of Drifters humbly apologize in advance for any offensive remarks we may have made about Carlsbad, New Mexico. In truth, we would return to this corner of the American Southwest in a heartbeat if the opportunity presented itself. Carlsbad Caverns is extraordinary... And that night out at the Ocotillo Inn? Unforgettable really.
Exploring Carlsbad Caverns: The Natural Entrance & Big Room Tours
On this Airstream Life vLog, we leave our awesome cow filled boondocking spot to drive over to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. We take you with us as we explore the caverns. Starting with the Natural Entrance, the Green Room, and more before making it down 750 feet to the elevators and the Big Room. The whole cavern is absolutely spectacular. Words, photography, and video just don't do it justice so we highly recommend coming yourself.
Some tips for exploring Carlsbad Caverns include:
1) Wear good shoes
2) There are handicap accessible areas that are gorgeous!
3) Do the Natural Entrance is you can
4) Don't use a flash! It will saturate all your photos. Instead hold your camera as still as possible.
Exploring Carlsbad Caverns was one of the top things we have ever done while full-time traveling in our RV. We highly recommend it!
Stay tuned for a windy but beautiful hike in the nearby Guadalupe Mountains on the next video.

State rep proposes bills to fund Carlsbad brine well before it's collapse
It really is a scary thought. A giant brine well that could become a massive sinkhole at any moment swallowing up drivers and part of a New Mexico town. - Source:
Scenic New Mexico Highways
Here is a video of two highways that offer scenic views of the New Mexico high desert mesa terrain. The first highway is called the Wagon Mound Highway, route 120 that runs from Wagon Mound to Roy. Turning south at Roy towards Logan, the second segment begins just east of Mosquero as the road drops off of the vast mesa into the valley below. It hard to think of this area as mountainous but the elevation at Wagon Mound is over 6300 ft, so it is actually higher than Denver by a thousand feet. I used my old Sony HX1 mounted to a tripod on the passenger side to shoot this. There's a little shake sometimes, but I'll be happy to look back at it and remember the trip. Thanks for watching.

Texas and New Mexico Road Trip (including Trinity Test Site)
This video covers the trip I had with my dad where we visited national parks in Texas and New Mexico. We visited Big Bend National Park, Monahan Sandhills State Park (in Texas), Carlsbad Caverns National Park, and Guadalupe Mountains National Park. We also visited a significantly important historical site that is only open to the public twice a year--the Trinity Test Site, where the first atomic bomb was ever successfully detonated in New Mexico a few weeks prior to the end of World War 2. We concluded the trip with a visit to White Sands National Monument.

Epic Family Vacation Across the United States
Starting an epic family travel adventure really gets the heart pumping! Did we forget anything? Where are we staying tonight? Are we seriously going to do this??!!
We're traveling approximately 7,000 miles over the next month! We're going to make travel stops at Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico; Grand Canyon, Arizona; the Utah National Parks, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Mount Rushmore, and wherever our interests take us. We have some things planned and some things not. We're winging it much of the way and excited about it!
Most people think we're crazy to travel this way -- taking two young kids across the country....in a car/SUV....few plans....have you lost your mind? Our kids are used to this kind of adventure. We travel for our living and truly do what we love when it comes to our life. We love traveling.
Can you imagine the memories we'll have from this adventure? It's one of those trips that can change the way you view the world; exposing you to completely new experiences.
Day one was a bit hum-drum -- although, it was completely unplanned, too. We weren't supposed to leave until the next day, but we were packed and ready, so why hold off?
We drove from our home in the Jacksonville, Florida area to New Orleans. We had a few stops along the way, but mainly just boogied down the road.
Our daughter has decided to cartwheel across the US, so we had to make a cartwheel stop and it was pretty cool! Just outside Pensacola, the rest area had a Navy Blue Angel flying out! It was very cool, especially so close to the 4th of July.
Dinner was also pretty cool, too. We wanted something local and found Hula's Bar and Grill in the Yelp travel app in Mississippi, just East of the Louisiana border. It was right on the intracoastal waterway with real pretty views. The food was pretty good and the service was definitely on island time.
Dinner provided a nice break from our travel before the final stretch into New Orleans. As we drove onto Canal Street (the world famous Canal Street, according to our navigation system!), local jazz musicians welcomed us to the city and a domestic dispute in the room next door overnight let us know, we're definitely in Nawlins, y'all!

The USS New Mexico Enjoys Flavors From The Mesilla Valley
On a weekday afternoon Dick Brown, Chairman of the USS New Mexico Committee of the Navy League is giving a presentation about the nuclear-powered submarine to an audience at the Branigan Cultural Center in Las Cruces.
Brown gives these updates to people all over the state to raise awareness and funds for the crew of the USS New Mexico.
We do things for the crew that the Navy cannot do. One of those things is that we bring crew members to New Mexico so that they understand the state a little bit better. They learn about the geography, the history, and the culture. We usually have about five or six sailors about twice a year, says Brown.
According to Brown, the crew has learned much about New Mexico and the submarine also has a southwest decor throughout the ship that is hard to miss.
There are pictures of Carlsbad Caverns, The Balloon Fiesta, and White Sands. The bunk curtains have a Southwest-Native American design, including the pilot, and co-pilot chairs in the diving station, says Brown.
Another part of the USS New Mexico that shares something in common with the state is the galley, or kitchen. It is named after La Posta de Mesilla, a popular Southern New Mexico restaurant housed in a centuries-old adobe building in the town of Mesilla.
Navy Captain Mark Prokopius, a former commander of the USS New Mexico shares the story about a contest that led to the naming of the submarine's galley.
When we decided that we were going to name our galley we put it up to the crew and there were several restaurants that were in the running to be named, says Cpt. Prokopius.
Tom Hutchinson owns and operates La Posta de Mesilla with his wife Jerean. He is a former Navy Captain and aviator and actually worked with submarines during his time in the Navy.
They sent several of their Mess specialists down here and trained with us for two to three days, took all that information after visiting all of the establishments back to Virginia, visited with the Skipper and the final vote and tally was that they would name their galley after La Posta de Mesilla, says Hutchinson.
The crew decided to name it La Posta Abajo del Mar (La Posta under the sea). Captain Prokopius says that restaurant in Mesilla really represented what the crew was looking for.
When I sold this to the crew and told them about La Posta being a family-owned, Tom Hutchinson being a former Navy captain, and a family oriented restaurant; It really seemed like a perfect fit, says Cpt. Prokopius.
After the contest ended the crew's culinary specialists were sent to the restaurant to learn recipes. Hutchinson and his employees gave the crew members a firm understanding of the restaurant's cuisine.
When they come out they typically spend a couple days with us. We'll take them out to the farms in and around Mesilla where we grow a lot of our produce. We let them meet our farmers, and let them see our process. We bring them in our kitchen our ladies spend hours with them, describing and practicing our recipes, so when they leave here they are pretty versed in producing good Southern New Mexico-Mexican food, says Hutchinson.
Hutchinson says that it is always great to have the crew members of the submarine stop in to the restaurant when they can.
To have them come and see us, and to spend a few days is a real honor and privilege for my staff, says Hutchinson.
In La Posta de Mesilla there is a model of the submarine and in the gift shop there are USS New Mexico items and accessories that are available for purchase with all of the proceeds going to help support the crew aboard the submarine.
