Go north of Taos on NM Highway 522 or south from Colorado. Look for the small green “Lama” township sign, which is just before our turnoff, immediately north of the 15-mile marker coming from Taos, or about 4 miles south of Questa. Turn east (toward the mountains) on Taos County Road B-014 or La Lama Road, drive over the cattle guard and follow the road east for about a mile. The road will curve to the left; continue for 1/2 mile and turn right on Upper Lama Rd. Then turn right at the next fork onto Lama Foundation Rd.
