Coming in from the tree you have to drive almost the entire length of the scenic byway (190) through Death Valley to get to Zabriskie Point.

Wow, that seems really strange though still to not even allow you inside The fact that they do have it decorated in U2 memorabilia shows they are proud of the history so I think that was pretty weird for them not to allow you in. Huh.

Thanks for the Zabriskie Point info. I do want to try to go by there this time.

I'll call my friend and see if I can stay with her in Chino. If not, we'll just get a cheap hotel near the airport and maybe someone can pick us up in the a.m. .

So in talking things over with Mr.Z we think I can actually make the trip alone if I don't come out til Friday and come home on Sunday, which will work just fine and save me beaucoup $$ on a flight for the little one. I'll either stay with Michelle or at a hotel near the Ontario airport (or on someone's couch )

Last year we met at Mel's Diner in Ontario around 8:15. We had breakfast, stopped off for some gas and essentials (Red Vines and Cheetos) and then we were off. Made a couple potty stops along the way, a stop for some fresh jerky and so Cecy and Dorene could feed the chickens, and then we went to the tree. Stayed for about 2 1/2 hours (if I remember correct) and then headed home. Our caravan parted ways and, the car I was in, went back to Ontario and its four passengers all had dinner at Chevy's. Then we each went on our exhausted, satiated, sleepy, but content way home.

I think we're still up in the air on this one. We definitely want to, but we need to see if we can work it out... just have a lot going on
