Highway 62/180 from El Paso to Carlsbad

Day II: Carlsbad, New Mexico to Whites city, New Mexico ( miles)

Located in the shadows of the rugged Guadalupe mountains and broad plains, the Carlsbad Caverns takes you to another world, away from sunlight altogether. The turning to the National Park is in the small town of Whites City, New Mexico. We left El Paso, Texas at a quarter after 7:00 am for Carlsbad. We made good time, thanks to Mark the driver (smile!). We decided to head straight to Carlsbad first for a morning brunch before going the the Caverns for the tour. Whites City is located in Eddy county, it is a small city and is linked in to Carlsbad Caverns on the U.S. geological map. It is one of those cities that one can easily pass by if they as much as blink while driving through. It is known only because of the Carlsbad Caverns.

After our rather less exciting brunch at Taco Bell in Carlsbad, we headed back to Whites City, then on to the National Park. The entrance road to the park was being worked on, so we had to wait for about 15 minutes while the outbound traffic came out, since there was just one way left opened.
