Poncha Springs Cemetery is difficult to find unless you're familiar with the area. It is actually in two parts up on a mountainside. To get to it: Go south on Highway 285 from Poncha Springs and after you cross the bridge South of town make a right turn (heading west) onto the first road that goes up the mountain; then go right at the first "Y" and it will take you to the lower part. To get to the upper part, go right at the first "Y" and then go right at the next "Y" and it will take you to the part of the cemetery that's on top of the hill.
