在新墨西哥州的沙漠里,有一处隐藏的世界—卡尔斯巴德洞窑国家公园(Carlsbad Caverns National Park)。访问者可以到750英尺深的地下参观洞穴。那里有许多令人好奇的景观。其中一个洞穴中有一座帝王宫殿,它是由石头组成的城堡造型。


这里还可以看到云湖(lake of clouds),因地下湖水面以下看得见的云雾状石头造型而得名。这里还有一个无底洞,游客在向深坑中投掷石头时听不到石头触底的声音。也许最为令人印象深刻的莫过于巨人厅(Hall of the giants),这是一个底部面积为357469平方英尺的巨大洞穴。


然而,这只是在该国家公园可以见到的一小部分景观。你是否愿意到地下去看一看这个奇特并且美丽的卡尔斯巴德洞窑国家公园?

Underneath the deserts of New Mexico, there’s a hidden world to explore at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Visitors can descend 750 feet underground to see the caves. There are many curious sites to see in the caves. There’s a king’s palace, a large castle like rock formation in one of the caverns. 


There’s a lake of clouds, named for the cloudlike rocks which are visible under the surface of an underwater lake. There’s a bottomless pit, where visitors can throw a rock into the pit and never hear it hit the bottom. Perhaps the most impressive is the hall of the giants, a massive cavern with a floor space of 357,469 square feet. 


However, that’s just a few of the things you can see at the park. So how would you like to travel underground to see the strange, beautiful world of Carlsbad Caverns National Park?
