3. Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico
The Carlsbad Caverns of New Mexico have stunning and remarkable mineral deposits that are shaped like icicles, highlighting the cave’s surface and allure. There are hundreds of thousands of tourists who come to see this beautiful cave all year round.
However, in recent years it has been found that there is actually an invisible hazard that has the ability to put any visitors in danger. Although many people believed that the worst thing that can happen during a visit is the possibility of getting lost in one of the dozens of rooms, this has nothing to do with the actual threat.
From time to time, these caverns discharge noxious gases, such as radon, which has been related to lung cancer. These gases form in the basement of the cave, but they can scope through the caverns, affecting all the people who are in them at the moment.

I have been to several of these n so have my adult children with their young families. You FOLLOW the rules and you will be ok!!
Stay away from it I say.
I myself haven’t been to any of those places but being from Cherokee NC with the Great Smoky Mountains neighboring our Reservation, you see people taking risks all the time. Of course everyone loves seeing the wildlife but when they want to crowd up around the elk, putting themselves and the elk in danger, is not smart at all. The same goes for bears who are even more dangerous and to some people they don’t care! Clingman’s Dome and the Chimneys are other great places to see but not without risks. Not that far of a hike but the high elevations, steep paths to the top and sometimes high winds are unseen hazards to remember.
