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.

New Year celebration in our RV at Palm Springs RV Resort

Several years ago we adopted a New Year's tradition which is a lot of fruits on the table, eat at midnight, make a lot of noise, have money/coins in pocket, turn on all the lights, open the doors, etc. But since we are living on an RV, have a limited space, most of what we do normally during the new year celebrations was off the list. 
So this year what we did was stayed up until after midnight. Eat the meals I had prepared which is not as much as I am used to but it was just a right amount. Our leftovers fits in our little fridge.

We watched the new year's countdown with King 5 news on Seattle Space Needle virtual show. It was amazing, they did a great job!

After we ate, we watched a movie that Alan had picked out and by the time we went to bed it was already half past 2 in the morning.

My first breakfast for the new year 2021 and  the best thing is I didn't have to cook it. 

Happy New Year 2021!
