FCU/NM unit joint rally

The Four Corners Unit, WBCCI is pleased to announce its first co-sponsored rally with the New Mexico Unit, WBCCI. This rally will provide an opportunity to experience the many attractions of the Jemez Canyon and surrounding area. The highlight of the rally will be a private, 3 - 4 hour tour of the Valles Caldera National Preserve - the country’s first National Preserve, established in 2000. This is a beautiful must see area.

The Valles Caldera National Preserve was a private ranch until 2000, when Congress created it from the well-known Baca Ranch. This 89,000 acre property is situated inside a collapsed crater. The scenery is just stunning.
We will camp in the USFS Paliza Campground. This is a brand new campground and as we understand it – very nice. This is dry USFS camping there are the usual FS restrooms, drinking water is available, but no hookups.

Date: June 25-28, 2009

The Rally Fee is TBD (estimated $8 -12 per person + $30 person Preserve Group Tour) and will include camping fees, morning coffee, Friday dinner and GREAT COMPANY and an opportunity to meet the nice folks of the NM unit.

Please PM me for registration information

We hope to see you there!!

Where it is in New Mexico . . .

If you are wondering where on earth this is, here are DRIVING DIRECTIONS to get you to the Valles Caldera National Preserve:




To drive to the Preserve from Albuquerque, you can go via Los Alamos or via Jemez Springs.

From Albuquerque via Los Alamos:

Take I-25 north to Route 599 (Santa Fe Relief Route) - follow signs on 599 north to Los Alamos- Espanola).
  • In Pojoaque, follow signs to Los Alamos and Hwy 502.
  • You can take the "truck route" to Highway 4 below Los Alamos or drive through Los Alamos and follow signs to "Jemez Mtns." (State Hwy. 4)
  • (If you pass through Los Alamos proper, take Trinity Drive to Diamond. Take a left on Diamond, then a right on West Jemez Road to the intersection with State Highway 4. Take a right [away from Bandelier National Monument], following the highway up and into the Jemez Mountains.)
  • The Preserve is 18 miles up Highway 4 from Los Alamos. Driving time from Albuquerque's Big-I is approximately 2.5 hours.
From Albuquerque via Jemez Springs:

Take I-25 North and Exit on to Highway 550 (Farmington Highway - old Hwy 44).
  • In San Ysidro, take Hwy 4 to Jemez Pueblo and Jemez Springs.
  • Follow Highway 4 at fork at La Cueva (stay right).
  • Preserve is about 22 miles from Jemez Springs. Look for the Main Gate at Mile Marker 39.2.
  • Driving time from Big-I is about 2 to 2.5 hours.
From Santa Fe:

  • Head north on Highway 84-285 past the Santa Fe Opera.
  • In Pojoaque, follow signs to Los Alamos and Hwy 502.
  • You can take the "truck route" to Highway 4 below Los Alamos or drive through Los Alamos and follow signs to "Jemez Mtns." (Hwy 4)
  • (If you pass through Los Alamos proper, take Trinity Drive to Diamond. Take a left on Diamond, then a right on Jemez Road to the intersection with State Highway 4. Take a right [away from Bandelier National Monument], following the highway up and into the Jemez Mountains.)
  • The Preserve is 18 miles up Highway 4 from Los Alamos. The Main Gate is at Mile Marker 39.2. Driving time from Albuquerque's Big-I is approximately 2.5 hours
From Northern NM:

  • Take Highway 84-285 from Espanola. Take Hwy 30 through Santa Clara Pueblo and then take Hwy 502 to Los Alamos. The route is well marked.
