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. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day.

Jerome's Birthday

Early this morning I got a call from my friend Jean. She asked me to come over for her son's birthday party, but I told her I can't promise to come because I wasn't feeling well, actually I was in bed until 2 pm. I didn't feel like getting up but I had to go to the store, to do grocery shopping. I hate it when Joel is not home, because I had to do it. When I got to the store, my friend Marissa just clock out and getting ready to go home. She helped me shop and we decided to go to the party. I was kind of scared driving to Badger road, it was slick, it snowed all day, but I did fine. It was a good party, I've seen some people I haven't seen for a long time. There are so many people in there, in fact their house is full. I remember when I first saw Jerome, he was just a kid, so little, now his bigger and taller than I am.. His a good kid.
