    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion on which side of the plane to sit between Denver and Las Vegas. It's a new route for me and I know there is a lot of cool stuff between the two cities. Specifically looking to see Lake Powell and/or Monument Valley if possible. I'm more interested in the stuff along the way vs. seeing the Las Vegas skyline on approach because I've been there a few times before. Anyway, thanks in advance!

    After checking this morning's route taken by UA 692 on FlightAware, it looks like you want to sit on the left side.

    Most often you will want to sit on the left side however it does depend on the air traffic flow going into Las Vegas at that time of the day but I would do the left side as a safe bet to see Lake Powell and the Hoover Dam.
