Spectacular Dantes View

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

Dandelions are good for your Lawn

Imagine that! Dandelions are one of the most familiar plant in the world and the most unpopular plant in the neighborhood. I got this information from  Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association website. According to them "Dandelions are good for your lawn. Their wide-spreading roots loosen hard-packed soil, aerate the earth and help reduce erosion. The deep taproot pulls nutrients such as calcium from deep in the soil and makes them available to other plants. Dandelions actually fertilize the grass."
It is well grown in my yard and this is a really good excuse not to weed them out.

My Abby! She was my baby for 15 years. I miss her so.

It was pretty nice and warm here today. This was reflection from my window. The color was just awesome!
Thanks for stopping by.
Be good
Be kind
Have fun!


  1. I had no idea dandelions were good for the lawn! Where I used to live in Utah only slackers and bad neighbors let the dandelions flourish. Nothing would upset a neighbor more than letting the dandelions go to seed in one's yard.

  2. Great reflection in the window! wow! I love Dandelions! I'm so happy to hear they are good for the lawn. I grew up thinking they were a dreaded weed. We don't get many dandelions in Austin Texas but when the do pop up, I find myself snapping pictures of them. They're so pretty!
