Carlsbad Caverns National Park - NM - USA - UNESCO #721

The third card of day is also a UNESCO WHS (with the recent swaps I'm gathering a lot of fantastic cards for my collection), this time from one of the world's largest underground chambers: the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, United States of America. Thank you very much Katie and to be honest I don't think you'll have any trouble visiting this caves even being claustrophobic, according to the description in the UNESCO website the chambers of those 85 caves are really large. Ok now, 294 down, 687 to go! This postcard took 12 days to arrive!
  
UNESCO #721 - Carlsbad Caverns - NEW MEXICO - USA
  
This karst landscape in the state of New Mexico comprises over 80 recognized caves. They are outstanding not only for their size but also for the profusion, diversity and beauty of their mineral formations. Lechuguilla Cave stands out from the others, providing an underground laboratory where geological and biological processes can be studied in a pristine setting.
