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

Highest Point in the Philippine Highway System

One of the highlights of our trip to the North of Philippines was seeing the Highest Point in the Philippine Highway System. It is located in the Province of Benguet, town of Atok. From Baguio City, on the Halsema highway, it's only 29 miles or 46 kilometers, but to get there, it took us at least 2 hours due to the roads are not only narrow but also sharp curves, steep cliffs, and traffic were also bad in some part. Not use to driving that kind of roads, so we took our time to be safe. After all, better safe than sorry. The climate was a little bit colder than I expected. It was probably from 60 to 70 degrees fahrenheit, which my husband loves it!
