China Ranch Date Farm

100_9600 This is one of our favorite places and a trip to Death Valley is never complete without taking a drive to get a date shake! 


100_9602 The girls enjoy the surroundings while Corky and Ed digest their date shake.


100_9603 Here's a better view with their smiling faces!


100_9604 This year even the date trees near the gift shop were "dressed."


100_9605 The dates are covered each year to keep the birds from eating them.  We love to drive through the date grove and see the different materials used to cover the huge clumps of dates.


100_9608 This bunch  of dates was dressed in men's pajamas!  I laughed so hard when I saw this.  Don't ya just love the dates coming out of the sleeves?


100_9609 Just a lovely day at China Ranch....
