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. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

We are now

Eagle Summit is at 108 mile Steese highway and it's about 2hr drive from Fairbanks. At the peak of the Eagle Summit Long and winding dirt road. It's a good road, we had a smooth ride through it.

Fortune Teller

Image
This is something that the Christian should not do and should not believe in...but what if it became true??? I'm going to tell you a story about my dad and I'll let you be the judge.. When my dad was a teenager, his friends invited him to go to a fortune teller. Of course my dad was pessimistic about it but he went and did it anyway. This is what the fortune teller told him: 1. He's going to get married to a woman who is from his hometown but they will meet in the land far away from home. My dad and my mom are both from Pangasinan. My dad moved to Mindanao because he got a good paying job down there. My Mom's family had moved to Mindanao also because of my Grandfather who was in Military. Thousand miles away from their hometown and they've met and got married. 2. He's going to have 5 children . At first my mom and dad had 3 kids, the oldest one was a boy and followed by 2 girls. When the youngest girl turned 6 years old, my mom and dad decided to add anot

I just got done reading this book on my iphone. I was going to search for an Apps for my iphone but when I click the search box, the tittle of this book was written on there. I don't ever remember typing that title and I don't who, where, what, when, how I got this book title typed on my iphone apps search box. However, I decided to bought it since it's only .99cent and I'm so glad I did. When I started reading it, I couldn't put my iphone down, this book is amazing, inspirational and encouraging. The author did a really good job. Any how, if any of you know anything about this book, please let me know, I might have heard it from you or something..

Salcha River

 Made a short drive to Salcha river and on our way there, we stopped by the Knotty Shop and bought us some ice cream. I really love their ice cream and the 30mile drive from our home to Knotty Shop worth it.                Abby and Farcom back to swimming again.

Better Than A Hallelujah

Image
God loves a lullaby In a mother's tears in the dead of night Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.   God loves the drunkard's cry, The soldiers plea not to let him die Better than a Hallelujah sometimes. We pour out our miseries God just hears a melody Beautiful the mess we are The honest cries of breaking hearts Are better than a Hallelujah. The woman holding on for life, The dying man giving up the fight Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes Tears of shame for what's been done, The silence when the words won't come Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes. We pour out our miseries God just hears a melody Beautiful the mess we are The honest cries of breaking hearts Are better than a Hallelujah. Better than a church bell ringing, Better than a choir singing out, singing out. Better Than A Hallelujah by Amy Grant
