Obamas headed to Carlsbad
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is taking the first family on a mini-vacation to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico and Yosemite National Park in California during Father’s Day weekend.
The White House notes the trip is taking place as the National Park Service nears its 100th birthday. The administration is using the trip to highlight Obama’s efforts to preserve land through the creation of new national monuments.
