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

Drive the Philippine Island, From North to South

It was a lot of fun but exhausting at the same time. Driving in the Philippines is no joke! Heavy traffic, roads that are lack of signage and/or lines, and of course drivers who has no discipline made the driving there worse but seeing and exploring the Philippines from the North all the way to South was Awesome! A wonderful experience.  I'm thankful for my brother-in-law for driving safely and for taking us all to our destination safe and sound.
The most exciting and scary road we drove was from Baguio to Tinglayan, Kalinga Province, and most of that drive was at night! My gosh, the road is narrow, twisty and sheer drops. And for hundreds of miles, the roads looks the same, never ending turn! I actually didn't start driving until we got in Surallah, South Cotabato.



Our trip started from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). when we arrived there and my sister and her family pick us up and we traveled North. I hope to cover all this places with the A to Z challenge.

  1. I hear what you're saying about the driving but have you ever driven in some parts of Europe? Especially Southern Europe. You will find the same conditions on some roads and highways. :-)
    Nice pictures.
