Amazing Views Of Death Valley, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas & More (VIDEO)

On this cold early February afternoon, a quick release from reality is just the trick to ease the winter blues.

Oliver Reik captured a super cool video of a flight over Death Valley, the Hoover Dam, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. The clear blue skies nearly make us forget about the massive snow storms and canceled flights that have hit this week and that even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, spring is still weeks away.

For a quick reprieve, check out the video of open air and stunning views below.
