Ruidoso, New Mexico can be found on Wikipedia.

On a personal note:We went to Ruidoso almost 3 years ago in February. I was the only one in the family who had ever been skiing before and I had only been once prior to this trip. We skied at Ski Apache and we all had a blast. I was shocked that everyone took so well to skiing. The town is really small and very friendly. I would love to go back and stay at the casino they have there, without the kids of course! 

Where In The World…Carlsbad Caverns National Park

The forces of water decorated the cave in an almost endless array of spectacular limestone formations like this column and array of stalactites.

Carlsbad Caverns National Park

The history of Carlsbad Caverns can be found on Wikipedia.

On a personal note: I went to Carlsbad Caverns when I was about 9 years old. I remember it being a long hike down to the bottom of the cavern and it got very cold! At sunset we sat at the entrance to the cave and watched hundreds of bats fly out of the cavern and over our heads. I even had the pleasure of having one of the bats hit my head! Yes I screamed!
