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

Ice Cream or Hot Tea

We were at the restaurant and we offered Alan a soft serve ice cream and a hot tea. And the winner was, the hot tea! He tried the ice cream but after he tasted it, he just ignored it. 
I'm so happy because he is not big on sweets. 
I guess it helps a lot that we tried to keep him away from sweets and junk foods on his early age. He was always my tea finisher, and when he's done, he takes my mug back to the kitchen counter.

My favorite ice cream is strawberry cheesecake with lots of cheesecake chunks. But I am now loving the Tillamook mudslide with chocolate fudge chunk on it (my hubby's ice cream) Yummy yummy in my tummy, there it stay!

It was breezy and rainy here today and I'm feeling sick. I think I'm coming down with colds!
Thanks for stopping by
Be good
Be kind
Have Fun!


  1. Wow tea over sweets. My daughter was the biggest sweettooth as a child (thanks to her late NaNa). I'll admit I have one myself, but it's more for chocolate. Have a great day. Eva

  2. Yes, I'm glad my boy is not big on sweets. Chocolate is good for you especially if it's dark chocolate but I'd go for white chocolate instead. Thank you for stopping by.
