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

A to Z Blogging Challenge

Starting tomorrow I will be posting from A to Z for the month of April for the Blogging Challenge. If any of you want to join or want more information about the challenge, please Click Here . My hubby and I have recently doing the Low Glycemic diet. I thought it will be a good idea to post  the Low Glycemic Index or low GI foods and maybe low GI recipes for the A - Z Challenge. I'm excited to start! I have joined the last year's challenge and I was posting songs that were meant something to me. I liked the challenge so much that I'm joining again this year.

Spring Time

I'm trying my best to keep up with my photography, but I've been busy lately. These are the pictures that I've taken last month and some of this month. My hubby and I have been busy packing our stuff to be ship overseas once we get our house sold here Bellingham Washington, God willing I hope it soon. I'm praying that He will bless and direct us to wherever he wants us to be so we can fulfill our purpose in life. Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

Puerto Princesa to Sabang Beach Palawan

Image
Going there, we hired a van with the driver, the cost was affordable P3500 or about $80 and it is for the whole day. Sabang Beach or Puerto Princesa Subterranean Park was only 33miles from the city but since some part of the road is not paved, it took us about an hour to get there. We have seen several of these overloaded Jeepney's and I believe this is the primary transportation of the villagers there. From Puerto Princesa City, riding this kind of transportation can take up to 3 hours  to Sabang Beach and it's only 33 miles.  Here's some part of the road. A motor bike ride would have been fun on these roads!  Here are the people waiting for their turn to catch a motor boat  ride to the mouth of Underground River. One thing I like about this trip to Underground River was that it is organized. When we purchased our permit (to get in the cave) the cost  was relatively low P150 or $3.50 for adult and P200 ($4.50) for foreigners and P700 or $16 to cover all of the bo
