Los Angeles

Los Angeles In my trip, we drove a total of 5800 miles, through nine states, crossing WA, ID, MT, WY, UT, CO, AZ, NV and CA. We explored world wonders, magnificent, beyond beauty America’s great west National Parks, cities and country. I think the best National Park is Yellowstone National Park, then Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. Yellowstone National Park covers a vast area, with mountains and water and lakes, waterfalls, rivers, mountains snow and glaciers. Also rare things such as hot springs, hot mud fountains and wildlife. Compare to China’s top tourist spots such as Huangshan(Yellow Mountain), Jiuzhaigou are small, nice and pretty, but too crowded. Speaking of China, this time in Salt Lake City, and the Grand Canyon I saw group after group of Chinese tourists, speaking loud Mandarin, there with high-end cameras. These Chinese people are really rich. I often felt that in some places was cursory, not enough time. I think that as long as I can still drive, run, and hike, I will go again. The summary of the following experiences, travel necessities are car GPS unit, iPhone and iPad. Smart phones usually have no service in most of the national parks. However, when you drive near a city or town, iPhone/iPad will have some data signal. I use it to book a hotel for the night of online. Generally it’s available for a discount price. Summers in North America, daylight is as long as 16 hours. That means one day is equal two days for your travel and sightseeing. On I-90

BLUE HAWAII – Elvis

Elvis Presley Picture Slideshow Movie In HD. Blue Hawaii (1961) is quintessential Elvis: plenty of songs, plenty of girls, and a setting that accents both. This time, the scene is Oahu and Kauai and the girls are his sweetheart (Joan Blackman), an attractive school teacher (Nancy Walters) and her four teenage students. The film also represents one of the biggest successes in the long collaboration between Hollywood powerhouse producer Hal B. Wallis and Presley. The legendary Wallis (Casablanca [1942], Rooster Cogburn, [1975]) first encountered Presley on a 1956 broadcast of a Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey show and predicted to his wife that “Elvis would soon be the most talked about newcomer in the business.” He called Colonel Tom Parker the next day and told him he’d like to sign Elvis to a film contract. “I knew instinctively that the Colonel was interested but playing it cool. He was a genius at getting every possible inch of financial mileage out of his astonishing protégé,” Wallis said in his autobiography Starmaker. After badgering Parker, Wallis finally succeeded in getting Elvis to Hollywood for a meeting and a screen-test, the results of which were electric: When I ran the test I felt the same thrill I experienced when I first saw Errol Flynn on the screen. Elvis, in a very different, modern way, had exactly the same power, virility, and sexual drive. The camera caressed him Under Wallis’ tutelage – and Parker’s approval – the camera would continue to caress Elvis
