DRIVING DIRECTIONS to Ancient Art Dance Studio / FLORALIA Dance and Middle Eastern Music Festival!
Coming in From the NORTH (Albuquerque)heading southbound on I-25
IT IS about a 2 1/2 hour-3 hour drive from ABQ. 150 miles more or less.
When driving in from Albuquerque it is best to fill up your tank in Alq. or Soccorro so that You can drive straight here from the I-25 and not have to go all ofthe way into TorC to fill up before coming out.
There are NO GAS STATIONS here! We are about 30 miles NW of TorC as the Crow flies.
When driving from Albuquerque You will come to the City of Socorro (about 50 miles) from us! After leaving Socorro you will drive for awhile, (approx 30 miles)then be on the look out for TWO steep Canyons, 1st, Nogal Canyon and then Monticello Canyon.
After you go down and up Monticello Canyon You will see Exit 89. This is where you will exit!
take the exit #89 off to your right, Then take an immediate left onto hwy #181, go approx. 3 miles,
take a right onto hwy #52, go approx 3 miles and follow the signs to MONTICELLO!
The road Y,s and You will go to the right onto hwy #142, You are traveling NWestewrly for about 11 miles “flat and straight road”, open range (watch for cows, especially BLACK ones after dark; coyotes and other wildlife!)
THEN! Eureka! ALL of a sudden the road drops down a steep hill into a Lovely valley~Monticello Canyon`la Alamosa Vally` YOU ARE HERE! with a magnificent mountain range towering above the valley to the North.
Go down the Hill carefully!! and when You get to the bottom the road is dirt for a short bit, then You will cross “The Bridge of Grace”. After You cross the Bridge, follow the road around to the left heading up the canyon and we are exactly 1/4 mile on your Right.
There is a sign on the GATE: 127 Calle Del Norte, there is a Big Building and a GREEN Fence!
YOU are HERE!
I will have your room ready and a Hot Bath!(For Beth)
Hope this helps some!
