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.

Welcome To Alaska

Image
February 14th 2010, my mother arrived in Anchorage Alaska for the first time. Joel drove 6 hours to Anchorage and I drove 5 hours back to Fairbanks. I just have to mentioned that..:) anyway, my mom's trip was good, she got here safe and sound. Even though the trip was long, she enjoyed it. Manila to Taipei was 2hrs something, Taipei to Anchorage was 9hrs straight flight and Anchorage to Fairbanks 5hrs drive. We got home and she still had the energy to entertained the family and friends who came to welcome her here in Fairbanks.. She's enjoying her stay so far but she's getting bored. I need to find her something to do to keep her busy. I'm excited for the Summer to come, I want to show her how to catch fish and how the gardening works up here.   On our way to Fairbanks

This is so unexpected and so thoughtful, it's not my birthday nor any occasions to receive a card. Marty didn't know what I'm going through today and to receive this card from her, it's just wonderful. Such a blessing.. Thank you Marty.

Thanks
