Steady Sr here in Lordsburg. The drive into the monument is easily done with 
a passenger car, we just took a wrong turn --trying out my son's new car 
navigation system it routed us down an abandoned roadway ...and left me with 
a 12 mile hike to the trailhead. Drive the route marked at spiriteagle.com 
and it is easy to get in to the monument.

Steady Sr.
