ICE CAVES AND BANDERA VOLCANO

About an hour and a half west of Albuquerque along the Continental Divide, you can visit the Ice Caves.  Take one trail and explore the Bandera Volcano while another leads to a cave buried in a collapsed lava tube where the temperature never rises above 31℉ and the ice shimmers a brilliant blue green year-round. Tickets to view the cave are $10 with some discounts for military and children; kids under 5 are free. (map)
