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

The day after Thanksgiving

It was hard to get up early and get ready for work. And as I walk toward my truck, I saw it was covered of snow about an inch or so. The road was a little bit slick but the snow covered trees was beautiful. I love driving around and seeing snow white covered tress.

Happy Thanksgiving inspite of what's happening

I almost didn't make anything for Thanksgiving dinner. I been sick for few days, stuffy nose and all and I took my husband to ER again last night thinking his having an allergic reaction to medication that the doctor prescribed him. I took him to the ER on Tuesday and the doctor misdiagnosed him, chronic sinusitis. Well the doctor last night confirmed that the rashes thats showed up on my husband head today is shingles. The headaches and eye pain eases up after he took the right medication. He was in pain since Monday. Anyway, I have managed to cook the turkey for the very first time all by myself. My husband said I did a great job. I didn't cook much food but it was more than enough for us. I am thankful for my family, in sickness and in health, we are staying together. Ther are so much to be thankful for. Inspite of what's happening in our lives, I'm thankful to be alive. Happy Thanksgiving!
