Planning Your Time
You can explore a cross section of the southeast's attractions in three days by moving quickly. If you start your trip from El Paso, Texas, swing through Guadalupe Mountains and Carlsbad Caverns national parks first. If you're dropping down from Albuquerque, reverse the itinerary and make cities such as Ruidoso and Roswell your first stops before traveling on to the national parks.
Gray Line of Albuquerque guides group sightseeing tours to Carlsbad Caverns National Park by special request. 300 2nd St. SW, Albuquerque, NM, 87102. 866/242–4998.
