Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around.

8th year

Year 2000, October, Friday the 13th, it was full moon, at 10:30 a.m, I first arrived here in Alaska. I was amazed when I saw and touched the snow for the first time ever.. I just can't believe it! I was so tired from a long trip that as soon as I walked in the house, I went looking for bed.. When I woke up, Joel took me to restaurant for dinner then we went to Fred Meyer. Joel had a good story about this but I won't tell..anyways, I was kind of shocked when I saw the store, I was thinking this is not a store, this is a warehouse. . One thing I admit though, even being far away from my family and friends, I didn't get home sick.. well, now and then I do but Joel really take good care of me.
