I really enjoyed the buffet at Las Vegas.
One day, I would like to stay over at one of Hard Rock Cafe Hotels.
A challenge to use a LCC carrier is the weight.
I am usually good at managing the weight without using a scale. fufufu
On the plane, I couldn’t enjoy movies because I thought I can watch movies by using Gogo Entertainment apps which should be should be able to use on any LCC carriers, but for the Virgins America, it seems it requires to download their apps for any entertainment on the plane.
However, I enjoyed one entertainment: their safety video.
It’s like a musical.

It took me hours to connect to internet disabling to sleep…and some photos are not uploaded properly – I can view them on my iPhone, but not on my iPad…hummmm
Sorry, I decided to sleep to enjoy my events on Day 6 of My Trip to the US; I needed enough sleep and energy.
Unfortunately, we cannot reach there with this Car which is cute and talks.
This is called Brain Rock – hahaha.
Close relook for verification.

We had a lunch at Goulding’s Lodge where the movie, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, was filmed by Director John Ford.

Humans are so small in front of nature!
The place is dry as you can easily imagine from these pictures; Navajo people played for precious rain here.
It’s hot but recommended to get close to these amazing rocks that are beautifully sculptured by the nature.
Please Google and check the scene to find out why I’m running.
There is another breath taking place.
Colorado River bends like a hourseshoe.
This scenic view is preserved by Glen Canyon Dam; the dam controls water to stop further erosion.
I woke up early to go watch sunset at Mather Point, Grand Canyon.
The host of this event is obviously Elk Deer (sorry, I introduced this type of this deer Elf, but Elk) because she lives here.
It was so beautiful.

I wish I could stay longer in Sedona, but departed for the Grand Canyons to watch the sunset there.
Rocks are so beautiful and changed colour as sun moves.
On the way out, a family of elves greeted me.
