Carlsbad Cavern, in the Guadalupe Mountains of southeastern New Mexico, is also a hypogenic cave. Four to six million years ago, groundwater charged with hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S) derived from petroleum accu- mulations in the Delaware Basin migrated upward through fractures and faults into the Capitan Reef Size: 2MB. The Guadalupe Mountains of New Mexico and Texas are home to more than caves, including those of Carlsbad Caverns National Park. If you are not familiar with the geology of the region, the National Park Service has already published a number of brochures describing the intricate, and well decorated cave system (I would recommend starting.
