I am coming to visit my son who is stationed at Cannon AFB. We are staying in Carlsbad on 9/3. My plan is to drive from Cannon and either visit Guadalupe Mtn National Park or Sitting Bulls Falls on 9/3.
My main concern is the heat, if we choose to do one of the hikes at the Park vs. The Falls. I am coming from GA, so am familiar with hot summers. I am undecided and hope to get some feedback.
We will visit Carlsbad Caverns for the bat flight that evening and then tour The Caverns on 9/4. After the Caverns on our way back, we plan on stopping at Bottomless Lake before heading back to Cannon.
I have only driven thru NM, never had a chance to see the sights. I welcome any all suggestions and tips. I may have missed something and want to make the most of this trip.
Thank you for reading!
