Lechuguilla Cave

Lechuguilla Cave is currently the seventh-longest explored cave in the world and the deepest in the continental United States but it is most famous for its unusual geology, rare formations, and pristine condition. The cave is named for Agave lechuguilla, a plant found near its entrance. It is located in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico.
