USA - Carlsbad Caverns National Park

"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." -

The Chandelier. The Chandelier dominates the center of the ceiling in the Big Room, one of the largest underground chambers in the world. Graceful draperies and other stalactites create this massive formation's delicate appearance.

Thank you so much Hannah for this wonderful postcard! =)
