In the red rock desert, the high canyon walls determine how long you have sunlight at your campsite each day.
That high point is beautiful. It has a gorgeous red rock wall that reflects the setting sun.
It has rays of warm sunshine all the way until the published sunset time (which was around 5PM).
R discovered that another dog replied a second later to every sound he made. Of course, R had to answer that other dog. And, on and on it went as R talked with himself - the delights of canyon walls that echo!
After the sun had set, we could view the colorful clouds from that high spot. The first evening had a nice one!
And we watched as it faded toward dusk.
