It’s Las Vegas’ version of the London Eye.

The image is of the Milky Way Galaxy, photographed in the Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
Somewhere in Wyoming on a trip out west,
these folks were outside my window.
…near Marble Canyon and Page, Arizona.
Presently I vacation by daydreaming about previous vacations. Several years ago we (the family) wanted to do something special and we thought zip lining would be perfect. Just outside of Las Vegas in Bootleg Canyon we traveled to the top of a mountain to go zip lining. All we could say was “WOW!” That’s Ashley on my left.
Arches National Park is located in Moeb, Utah. The formation pictured is called “Park Avenue”.
…and into the future.
I was heading in the direction of Socorro, New Mexico.
My destination was the Very Large Array (VLA).
Zombies are everywhere!

Jason reminded me that 10 years + 1 week ago (8-20-09), on our family vacation out west, he and I got lost in Arches National Park, Moab, Utah. I wanted to take a nighttime photo of the Delicate Arch. The arch is 1 mile walk from the car. We trekked in daylight but couldn’t find our way back at night. We had to literally call out “Help”! Someone, who wasn’t lost, came to our rescue and guided us back to our car.
Returning to the hotel, I found Deb (I state this “politely”) unhappy. She was “thisclose” to calling the police. Secretly I think she was happy I had a ton of scratches on my legs from the thick bushes Jay and I walked through on our “lost” journey. (The photo above is from the night.)

Mesa Arch Sunrise in Canyonlands National Park in Moab, Utah.
A popular and beautiful destination for many photographers, both professional and amateur.
If you decide to go, arrive hours before sunrise. It gets busy!
Redwood Forest. Standing with the Giants.
In California is the Big Basin Redwoods State Park.
My son poses with the Giants.
Grand Canyon Sunset on the North Rim.
The road less traveled is the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
If you want to avoid the crowds of the South Rim, head north!
Monument Valley. Navajo Nation. One of the most beautiful places in the world.
For lovers of the American West and John Ford movies, a view of Monument Valley
Sunset on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
I discovered Devils Tower when I saw “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” in the 1977.
I was stunned to learn that the mountain was real and not a “fictional prop”.
….waterfalls in the distance.
