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.

I wish I have $3K laying around so I can take my Abby with me to Philippines. She has all the vaccines, certificates, and import permit that are needed but the problem is the airlines has weight limit policy of 70lbs or less  with the kennel. Unfortunately, Abby is 79lbs without the kennel and to have her fly with the pet transport services it will cost from $3K- $5K and that's only from Seattle. To fly her from Alaska to Seattle, it will cost us another $600+ I don't wish to be rich, but right now, I wish I am. Abby is 11 years old. We have her since she was one year old. We found her from the free add in the newspaper and fall in love with her since the first time we saw her. She's been with us since then and been all over Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, and Canada. She loves swimming and running but she's an indoor dog. As for my other dog, Farcom, we had to change all our flights and paid the whopping few hundred dollars of fees just so we can take him with us (
