Spectacular Dantes View

Image
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.

Cowgirl Hat

Yee-haw! Brenda is back from her vacation to Texas and she brought me back a cowgirl hat. I really like it but it would be a lot better if she brought me back a cowboy hat with a live cowboy in it..   02-10-09

Rev. Ludrigo Gasmin

He is my eldest brother. A Pastor who does Sunday Ministries. Right now he is assigned in Lubol Christian and Missionary Alliance Church.  Lubol is in a remote place in South Cotabato, Mindanao, Philippines. To get there he has to ride a motorcycle for an hour and almost 2 hours of horse-back riding in a terrible muddy and rocky road. He also has to cross 4 rivers. Sometimes when it rains hard he could not reach the place because either the road is washed-out or the water level in the river is too high.  On his way to the church with his wife (Annie) and his eldest daughter (Gretchen).  Above is Gretchen and below is Annie

It was a beautiful day for snowboarding and skiing. Joel and I had fun. I did good , actually I snowboarded the intermediate route and did just fine. Joel skid down with me and he did it patiently.  Starting Point Joel at the Binkley's bowl   The sunset was wonderful, it fills the sky with colors. This was on our way home.

Flora Roddy owed me a penny. I told her not to worry about it but she paid me anyway.  I guess a penny less I can't have a dollar.   2/5/9
