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.

Taste the day

a nd tell me what it's like. Are you looking forward to get OLD faster? if not, well, stop saying you can't wait for your day to be over. By the end of your day, you're a day older.  Live one day at a time, make the most out of your day. Live laugh and love and laugh some more. Laugh until you cry, it feels good.

Surallah Alliance Church

Image
My family in Surallah, this picture was taken outside the church. Rev. Elroy Sidon is the head pastor in that church and he's been working there for like 15 years or so. Rev. Elroy is married to my Aunt Welisa (my mother sister). In this picture the first 3 kids on the left are their kids, sorry, I don't remember their names. The adults from left are Rev. Elroy, Aunt Welisa, My Grandmother, Aunt Warlyn, Aunt Wellieta, my sister Marites, Aunt Welbeth, and Uncle Warlito. The other boy is my cousin from Aunt Welaila (shes not in this picture). Anyways, they are my family in my mother side. There are more but they're not in this picture, maybe they didn't go to church.. See, that's what you get when you don't go to church, you don't get to be in the pictures.

Sunday afternoon, after church, we went to Chena Hot Spring Resort. It was so relaxing,  I got all the sore muscles of mine soaked in hot spring water. oh it felt so good. I fall asleep, most of the time, on our way back home. (My Mom, me and my friend Marissa) Above picture wasn't clear but that was my hubby, my friend and my mom.    We saw moose on our way back home
