Proceed south on I-25 towards Walsenburg. At Mile marker 56, get off I-25 and head west on Red Rocks Road. Red Rocks road will "T" into Hiway 69, turn right (north) on Hiway 69. Go just about 20 miles north on Hiway 69 to Gardner. Gardner is a very small town, no stop lights, maybe 15-18 houses, restaurant, church, etc. Towards the end of town is a sharp left then right turn.

About 1.5 miles from town (towards Westcliffe) is County Road 634 (Gardner Road) - turn right onto CR 634. Watch for the "RMSS TURN HERE" signs! Go approximately 3.5 miles, watch for a small sign on the right indicating "Delaura". Turn right , go past the green metal gate about 1/4 mile. Watch for a small driveway on the right. This leads to Annie's house, and is not our property. The property starts with the big field on the right, and runs up to the next road that leads off to the right.
