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

Whatcom Falls Park

Here are some pictures of our little adventure, on a Monday afternoon, at Whatcom Falls Park. This was our first time visit and we didn't know what trails start where or where it ends. We just follow one trail up to the water falls. We've seen 3 different falls, one is bigger the other two were small. Very nice! We followed the trail up until we saw some houses, we asked a couple who were going in to the park and they said the trail ends right there otherwise we have to go though the houses, to the main street and back to the park.  We didn't want to do that so we just turned around and head back were we came from.
It was a very pleasant walk through the park. I love the water, the big tress, and everything in between. It's so green! My little boy had so much fun, walking, running, and climbing up the steps. Given up the chance, he would have love to play in the water. Maybe some other time.
