Airglow (also called nightglow) is a faint emission of light by a planetary atmosphere. In the case of Earth's atmosphere, this optical phenomenon causes the night sky never to be completely dark, even after the effects of starlight and diffused sunlight from the far side are removed. This phenomenon originates with self-illuminated gases and has no relationship with Earth's magnetism or sunspot activity.

Green light is the brightest airglow. It comes from excited oxygen atoms located between 56 to 62 miles high. This band of green is readily observable from spacecraft looking back toward earth.

Sahara Hotel and Casino https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2024/5/sahara-hotel-and-casino

Sahara Hotel and Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada
May 12th, 2011

The Sahara Casino in Las Vegas holds a rich history dating back to its grand opening on October 7, 1952. It was one of the first major hotel-casinos to grace the famous Las Vegas Strip. Originally named the "Sahara Hotel and Casino," it quickly became an iconic destination in the desert city.

May 16th, 2011, the Sahara closed its doors amid financial difficulties, marking the end of an era for one of Las Vegas' most storied casinos. However, its legacy lived on, and in 2014, the property was purchased by the SBE Entertainment Group and renamed the "SLS Las Vegas."

In 2019, the Sahara name returned to the Las Vegas Strip when the SLS was rebranded as the "Sahara Las Vegas." The reimagined resort pays tribute to the Sahara's heritage while offering modern amenities and experiences for today's visitors.

Lees Ferry Fort https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2024/5/lees-ferry-fort

Lees Ferry
Glen Cayon National Recreation Area
Arizona
March 2024

Lees Ferry, nestled within the dramatic landscapes of northern Arizona, boasts a rich history dating back centuries. Initially known as "Lonely Dell" due to its isolation, it gained significance as a crucial river crossing point along the Colorado River. The ferry, established by Mormon pioneer John D. Lee in 1871, facilitated the transportation of people, goods, and livestock across the formidable river. Its strategic location made it a pivotal stop along the Old Spanish Trail, connecting Utah to California. Over time, Lees Ferry evolved into a hub for trade and communication, fostering the growth of nearby settlements and serving as a lifeline for travelers journeying through the rugged terrain of the Southwest.

In addition to its role in transportation and commerce, Lees Ferry also holds cultural and historical significance. The area is steeped in the stories of indigenous peoples who inhabited the region for millennia, leaving behind traces of their presence in petroglyphs and other archaeological remnants. Moreover, the ferry's proximity to the Grand Canyon and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area has made it a gateway to some of the most iconic landscapes in the United States, attracting adventurers, artists, and nature enthusiasts from around the world. Today, Lees Ferry stands as a testament to the resilience of human endeavor in the face of nature's challenges, preserving its heritage while continuing to captivate visitors with its timeless beauty and allure.

Balanced Boulder II https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2024/4/balanced-boulder-ii

Balanced Boulder II
Lees Ferry
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
Arizona
March 2024

Thousands of years ago a huge rock boulder broke from the cliff above and tumbled to a stop here. The hard conglomerate boulder compressed the softer dirt directly beneath, making it resistant to erosion. The boulder also acted as a massive umbrella, protecting the stone beneath from years of wind and rain. Over time, at least 6 feet of the surrounding loose ground was carried away, leaving an ever-growing pedestal with a balanced rock perched on top. You can see this process taking place under many rocks in the area. At some point, the sheltering boulder may become too much weight for its pedestal, toppling and taking another fateful tumble. (NPS)

Devil’s Cornfield
Death Valley National Park
California
February 2024

Nestled between Stovepipe Wells and Beatty Junction along Highway 190, you'll discover the enigmatic Devil's Cornfield, just a stone's throw east of the Mesquite sand dunes. Here, the landscape is adorned with the distinctive presence of arrowweed (Pluchea sericea), an evergreen plant that weaves tales of its ancient use. Echoing its common name, this remarkable plant once served as the sturdy backbone for crafting arrows by Native Americans, adding a touch of history to the allure of this unique terrain.

Tropicana is Officially Closing https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2024/1/tropicana-is-officially-closing

The Tropicana is officially closing on April 2, 2024

The resort was conceived by Ben Jaffe, part owner of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. The $15 million Tropicana opened on April 4, 1957, as the most expensive Las Vegas resort developed up to that point. By the 1970s, the Tropicana had difficulty competing against larger, newer resorts, eventually losing its prominence as a luxury property.

The Tropicana includes a 44,570 sq ft (4,141 m2) casino and 1,467 rooms. The hotel originally opened with low-rise structures containing 300 rooms, and the property would later launch several expansions, including two hotel towers added in 1979 and 1986 respectively. The latter tower was accompanied by the introduction of an island theme for the property. The Tropicana has been host to various live entertainment, including the topless showgirl revue known as Folies Bergere. It ended in 2009, after nearly 50 years, and remains the longest-running show in Las Vegas history.

The Tropicana underwent numerous ownership changes throughout its history. Mob connections were present at the time of its opening, and an FBI investigation in 1979 uncovered a skimming operation at the resort. It was sold that year to Ramada Inns, which later transferred ownership to its spin-off company, Aztar Corporation, in 1989.

During the 2000s, Aztar considered demolishing the Tropicana for development of a new resort, although this did not come to fruition. Columbia Sussex bought the resort in 2007, but lost it to bankruptcy two years later, with Onex Corporation emerging as the new owner. Onex launched a $180 million renovation, the property's first since 1986. The project, completed in 2011, added a South Beach theme.

Penn National Gaming bought the Tropicana in 2015, before selling it to Bally's in 2022. A year later, the Oakland Athletics baseball team reached an agreement with Bally's to demolish the Tropicana, making way for two new projects: a baseball stadium on nine acres of the site, and a new resort bearing the Bally's name on the remaining land. The Tropicana is scheduled to close on April 2, 2024, and is expected to be demolished by the end of the year.

The Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas has a rich history dating back to its opening in 1957. Originally known as the Tropicana Resort & Casino, it was one of the first major hotels on the famous Las Vegas Strip. The Tropicana demolition is on track for late 2024 or early 2025, and it will become the site of a new baseball stadium for the A’s.

The A’s move was unanimously approved by MLB ownership on November 16, 2023, during the owners' meeting in Arlington, Texas. The Athletics applied to relocate to Las Vegas after their lease with the Coliseum expires at the end of the 2024 season.

Originally known as the Tropicana Resort & Casino, it was one of the first major hotels on the famous Las Vegas Strip. The Tropicana demolition is on track for late 2024 or early 2025, and it will become the site of a new baseball stadium for the A’s.

The A’s move was unanimously approved by MLB ownership on November 16, 2023, during the owners' meeting in Arlington, Texas. The Athletics applied to relocate to Las Vegas after their lease with the Coliseum expires at the end of the 2024 season.

Prints are available through this site or my Pixels Photography site. See more of my Las Vegas Photography here.

Dantes View
Lake Manly
Death Valley National Park
California
November 2023

“I don’t pay much attention to scenery, but I know one view that made me stop and look.”

These words were spoken in 1926 by Charles Brown, a local man from Shoshone, when asked by the governor of Nevada for his opinion of the best view of Death Valley. As true today as it was then, Dantes View affords visitors an unparalleled view of the swirling white salt flats of Death Valley below (or if you’re a Star Wars fan, Mos Eisley), and the Panamint Range to the west. 

Towering 5,575 ft (1,699 m) above Badwater Basin, on the ridge of the Black Mountains, Dantes View is a favorite spot for photographers. Sunrise and sunset are especially magnificent here. (NPS)

Natural Bridge https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/11/natural-bridge

Natural Bridge
Death Valley National Park
California
November 2023 

Natural Bridge is a stunning geologic formation tucked back in a Death Valley canyon.
The bridge rises approximately 35 ft (11 m) above the canyon floor and is about 35 ft (11 m) thick. Although rain is infrequent in Death Valley, over thousands of years, flash flood events have carved the canyon which Natural Bridge spans today. At some point, the water changed course slightly and ran just north of the present location of the bridge (look for this diversion as you hike). This diversion lowered the level of the canyon just above the location of the bridge. Eventually, the water returned to its initial, straighter course, forming a hole under the span of the bridge and eventually lowering the floor of the canyon even more, creating the bridge and leaving it high and exposed. (NPS)

Devil’s Golf Course
Death Valley National Park
California
November 2023 


The Devil's Golf Course is a large salt pan on the floor of Death Valley. It was named after a line in the 1934 National Park Service guidebook to Death Valley National Monument, which stated that "Only the devil could play golf" on its surface, due to a rough texture from the large halite salt crystal formations.

Parowan Gap
Iron County
Utah
August 2023

The Parowan Gap is a remarkable geological feature located in southwestern Utah. This unique gap, formed by the eroding forces of wind and water over millions of years, boasts a captivating collection of natural rock art and petroglyphs etched into its towering red sandstone cliffs. These ancient petroglyphs, created by Native American tribes, provide a fascinating glimpse into the spiritual and cultural heritage of the region's indigenous peoples. The Parowan Gap has long been a place of cultural significance and is recognized for its celestial alignment with the summer and winter solstices, emphasizing its importance as an astronomical observatory for ancient civilizations. Today, it continues to be a destination for those interested in archaeology, geology, and the preservation of Native American history.

Church Rock
Highway 191
Utah

Very Near To Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument and the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park, this oddly shaped sandstone formation was erroneously associated with Marie Ogden’s nearby utopian community “Home of the Truth”. The rectilinear opening at the base of the formation was not, however, an attempt to hollow out the rock to make it into a church as local lore would have it (hence, Church Rock), but was in fact dynamited and cut out of the stone by the property owner during the 1940s to store salt licks and feed for cattle.

Faux Falls https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/9/faux-falls

Faux Falls
Moab, Utah
September 2023

Faux Falls isn't a natural wonder; it's a masterpiece of human engineering. The water is diverted from the meandering Mill Creek through an underground labyrinth beneath Brimley Ridge, only to let the water gracefully tumble over Faux Falls.

The culmination of this hydrological action takes place at Ken's Lake, where the water is stored, a vision conceived in the minds of early settlers who dared to dream big in the Moab wilderness. The project's completion, a testament to their perseverance, didn't materialize until the year 1981.

Prints are available through this site or my Pixels Photography site. See more of my Faux Falls photography here.

Kanarra Creek Waterfalls
Kanarraville, Utah
August 2023

The Kanarra Creek Waterfalls presents an awe-inspiring tapestry of nature's grandeur within the heart of Utah's remarkable landscapes. The culmination of this trek unveils the enchanting Kanarra Creek Waterfalls themselves – a sight to behold as pristine waters cascade gracefully down terraced rocks into inviting emerald pools below. The harmony of flowing water, sculpted rock, and rich canyon hues create an otherworldly ambiance that stirs the spirit and reminds us of the untamed beauty of the natural world. Another highlight of the hike is undoubtedly the stunning slot canyon, carved over millennia by the gentle but persistent flow of Kanarra Creek.

Detriot River
Grosse IIe, Michigan
August 2023

The Grosse Ile North Channel Front Range Lighthouse is in good condition considering it was built in 1906. It stands 40 feet tall and was deactivated in 1963. The octagonal white tower is beautiful, each face is sided with horizontal wood strips like clapboards on an old house. Near the middle, the structure angles inward and narrows. The eight-sided lantern room is empty now. The Grosse Isle Historical Society will give tours of this light. Since it is on private land, visitors must be escorted to the light by members of the society.

Plaikni Falls https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/8/plaikni-falls

Plaikni Falls
Crater Lake National Park
Oregon
July 2023 


Plaikni Falls is located along the East Rim Drive within the Crater Lake National Park at the south end of Mount Scott. The waterfall is located in a glacier carved cliff surrounded by walls of petrified volcanic ash.

The location of Plaikni Falls wasn't known by many until the park constructed a new trail in 2011, making the Plainki Falls trail one of the most popular destinations along the Crater Lake Rim Drives. The trail to the falls is surrounded by old-growth fir and hemlock forests rich in wildflowers.

The name of the waterfall stems from a Native American word that means "from the high country".

Prints are available through this site or my Pixels Photography site. See more of my Crater Lake National Park photography here.

Kodachrome Basin State Park https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/7/kodachrome-basin-state-park

Kodachrome Basin State Park
Cannonville, Utah
June 2023
A short drive from Bryce Canyon National Park.
Photography from the Panorama and Grand Parade trails.

Kodachrome Basin State Park contains eroded, multicolored rock formations in various shades of red, yellow, pink, white, and brown; together with the (usually) deep blue sky and occasional green vegetation, this combination led the National Geographical Society to name the area, in 1949, with the permission of Kodak Film Corporation.

The one unique feature of the park is the presence of over 60 spires or chimneys of rock, known as sand pipes, which are thought to be solidified sediment that filled ancient springs or geysers, left standing after the softer surrounding Entrada sandstone weathered away. The tallest is 170 feet high.

Willis Creek Slot Canyon is a beautiful and unique slot canyon located in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Utah. The canyon is known for its smooth rock walls that rise and fall as well as periodically widen and narrow during the hike. Hiking within the narrow canyon, hopping and skipping over the creek, and watching as the canyon walls steadily grew higher and higher over us as we headed downstream is such a cool experience.

Picture Canyon Waterfall https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/6/picture-canyon-waterfall

Picture Canyon Waterfall
Picture Canyon Natural and Cultural Preserve
Flagstaff, Arizona
June 2023

Picture Canyon was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 10, 2008.  The 478-acre preserve was purchased on October 30, 2012, at a public auction on the steps of Coconino County Courthouse from the State Land Department by the City of Flagstaff for $4.8 million after several community groups rehabilitated the area and rallied decades for its protection.  An agreement was made with the Wildcat Hill Wastewater Treatment Plant, located immediately south of the preserve, to provide a constant water source for the riparian habitat and wildlife.  Reclaimed water is discharged into a pond that feeds the Rio de Flag through a rugged geological canyon composed of basalt rock.  Thousands of years ago, between 700 and 1300 AD, this area was home to the natives known as the Northern Sinagua (people without water). Picture Canyon is named for the large density of petroglyphs created by the Sinagua located along the river.  Hundreds of panels were created depicting archers, geometric shapes, and local animals like birds and turtles.

Desert Bighorn Sheep Ram

May 2023

Desert Big Horn Rams are majestic creatures that inhabit the rugged and arid landscapes of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. These impressive animals are known for their massive curved horns, which can reach up to 3 feet in length and weigh as much as 30 pounds. While these horns are primarily used for defense against predators and foraging for food, they also play a crucial role in the desert big horn ram's mating rituals.

Prints are available through my Pixels - Fine Art America site. See more of my Desert Bighorn Sheep photography here.

Yellow-headed Blackbird
Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve
Henderson, Nevada
May 2023

With a golden head, a white patch on black wings, and a call that sounds like a rusty farm gate opening, the Yellow-headed Blackbird demands your attention. Look for them in western and prairie wetlands, where they nest in reeds directly over the water. They’re just as impressive in winter, when huge flocks seem to roll across farm fields. Each bird gleans seeds from the ground, then leapfrogs over its flock mates to the front edge of the ever-advancing troupe.

Male Gambel's Quail https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/5/male-gambels-quail

Male Gambel's Quail
Boulder City, Nevada
May 2023

Gambel's Quail is a fascinating and iconic bird species found throughout the arid landscapes of the Mojave desert. Named after the prominent naturalist William Gambel, these quails possess unique and striking characteristics. The males showcase a vibrant plumage featuring a rich combination of gray, brown, and black, adorned with a distinct forward-curving black topknot atop their heads. Females, on the other hand, exhibit a more modest appearance with a predominantly brownish hue. Gambel's Quail are renowned for their distinctive, melodious calls that echo across the desert. They are highly social birds, often observed in small family groups known as coveys, which provide them protection and enhance their foraging efficiency.

Mary Jane Falls
Spring Mountains
Kyle Canyon
Nevada
May 2023

Monday morning hike to Mary Jane Falls in the Spring Mountains. The water is really flowing as the winter snowpack begins to melt.

The hike to Mary Jane Falls is a must-see for anyone looking to experience the natural beauty of Nevada's rugged landscapes!

The Mary Jane Falls Trail is fairly strenuous, climbing almost 1,100 feet in 1.6 miles. The trail starts at the bottom of Kyle Canyon, which at this point is deep, heavily forested, and surrounded by beautiful gray limestone cliffs. In the first 0.7 miles, the trail climbs 450 feet, then turns right into a side canyon and climbs another 650 feet to the falls in the remaining 0.9 miles. The falls are seasonal; the best flows occur during spring when the snow is melting. Trail description from birdandhike.com (https://www.birdandhike.com/Hike/Mt_Char/MJ_Falls/_Mary_Jane.htm)

Coyotes
Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve

April 2023

Coyotes are a common sight in Southern Nevada, where they can be found in a variety of habitats, including urban areas, desert landscapes, and mountainous regions. These adaptable animals are known for their intelligence, resourcefulness, and keen sense of smell, which helps them locate prey and navigate their environment. While coyotes are generally shy and avoid human contact, they can become a nuisance when they raid garbage cans, prey on pets, or cause other disruptions. It is important for residents to take measures to prevent coyote encounters, such as securing trash cans, keeping pets indoors or on a leash, and avoiding leaving food out in the open.

Being under the desert Milky Way stars is an awe-inspiring and humbling experience. As you gaze up at the night sky, the darkness is pierced by thousands of tiny pinpricks of light, each one a distant sun or galaxy. The vastness and beauty of the stars above can leave you feeling insignificant, yet at the same time, connected to something larger than yourself. The quiet of the desert amplifies the experience, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the wonder of the cosmos. Under the desert stars, you can't help but feel a sense of peace and tranquility.

Glen Canyon Dam https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/3/glen-canyon-dam

Glen Canyon Dam
Page, Arizona


Glen Canyon Dam is the second highest concrete-arch dam in the United States at 710 feet, second only to Hoover Dam which stands at 726 feet.

The dam, located on the Colorado River in northern Arizona, has several advantages and disadvantages. One of the main advantages is that the dam provides hydroelectric power and irrigation water for a large area in the southwest United States. The dam also creates Lake Powell, a popular recreational area for boating, fishing, and camping. However, the construction of the dam caused significant environmental damage by flooding the Glen Canyon area and disrupting the natural flow of the Colorado River. Additionally, the dam's operations have impacted downstream ecosystems, affecting the habitats of several endangered species. The dam has also contributed to the depletion of sediment downstream, which has caused erosion and other environmental issues. Despite its benefits, the Glen Canyon Dam's negative impacts on the environment should be considered when assessing its overall effectiveness.

Sunset Fire https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/3/sunset-fire

I went out last night for the moonrise, which didn’t happen because of the low clouds. I had to settle for some sunset captures instead:-)

Dam Sunrise
Glen Canyon Dam

Glen Canyon Dam is the second highest concrete-arch dam in the United States at 710 feet, second only to Hoover Dam which stands at 726 feet.
The photo was taken a few years ago when the water behind the dam was much higher than today.

Spooky Canyon https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/2/spooky-canyon

Spooky Canyon
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Arizona


Spooky Canyon is the unofficial name of a minor, relatively shallow drainage at the edge of the Black Mountains, on the east side of the Colorado River a few miles from the Hoover Dam. The wash forms a short slot canyon through grey, conglomerate (or 'fanglomerate') rocks, only a third of a mile long, but surprisingly pretty, and quite dark in a few places due to overhanging rocks; the canyon walls take on an orange-yellow tint when illuminated by reflected sunlight.

Prints and products are available through this site or my Pixels - Fine Art America site. See more of my Spooky Slot Canyon photography here.

Liberty Bell Arch Views https://www.jamesmarvinphelps.com/blog/2023/2/liberty-bell-arch-views

Liberty Bell Arch
White Rock Canyon
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Arizona

The hike to Liberty Bell Arch is a stunning desert trip with amazing views, geologic history, and desert life.

Hit the trail early in the day to beat the heat. Hike all the way to the end of the trail (to the left after you reach the Liberty Bell) for a rewarding view of the Colorado River. In March, the cacti and other desert plants burst into bloom along the trail. 

The trail is 5.3 miles out and back.

Prints are available through this site or my Pixels - Fine Art America site. See more of my Liberty Bell Arch photography here.
