Directions and Parking: if coming from I25 (either direction), exit at
Lomas and go East (toward the mountains) past University, the next
light is Yale. Turn left (North) on Yale and then bear right through our
lovely new traffic circle to end up heading East again, but take the
first right into the parking lot. Park at any non-metered space and
then go into the front office and get a parking pass (just mention
that you are visiting Greg Taylor for the day) - go back outside and
display the permit from your rearview mirror. If you can't find
parking in our little lot, you can always find parking places
on the other side of Yale. To get there go back to the traffic
circle, take the west exit and then your first left into the parking lot.
