During my first trip to Utah, I ventured to Arches National Park where I hiked through the late August heat to visit the Delicate Arch in the evening to catch the sunset on this awesome rock. One of my favorite parts of this landscape was the stark contrast of the bright blue of the sky behind the bold reds and oranges of the rocks and sand. And the arch is just crazy cool! Also saw some desert critters along the way.
