Ice Cave & Bandera Volcano


For a real experience in contrast, visit the Ice Cave and Bandera Volcano, "The Land of Fire and Ice."  Situated on the Continental Divide you walk through the twisted, old-growth Juniper, Fir and Ponderosa Pine trees, over the ancient lava trail to the Ice Cave.  Here the natural layers of ice glisten blue-green in the reflected rays of sunlight.  Another trail winds around the side of the Bandera Volcano to view one of the best examples of a volcanic eruption in the country.  Located in the heart of El Malpais, the historic Ice Cave Trading Post displays ancient artifacts as well as contemporary Indian artwork.
