Sunsets in national parks and public lands are spectacular and I encourage you to include them in your upcoming travel plans. If you enjoy Park People and haven’t participated, head on over to the Park People Participants page to learn more.
Grand Canyon National Park
This was our second stop touring the National Parks in Arizona. All I can say is, stay for the sunset.
Deception Pass State Park
After a full day of whale watching, we took a picnic dinner over to Deception Pass State Park (WA). I snapped just a single photo before my husband and I sat down to watch the sunset. It was a very romantic way to end the day.
I live in Arizona and frequently travel around the Southwest, so it’d be downright impossible to choose a single favorite sunset photo. But this quick, poorly lit sunset selfie—not my best shot, certainly—seems like an appropriate one to highlight, as it was one of the first sunsets my girlfriend Jen and I shared together.
Yellowstone National Park
Bonnie spotted the reflection on the Yellowstone River while driving back to our campground in Yellowstone National Park one night.
North Phoenix, AZ
This obviously has been edited some, but I don’t care. I love it.
San Angelo State Park
Hiking San Angelo SP in west Texas on a beautiful night. The trails were mostly flat so I could miles to the west of the park and all the mountains that dot the west Texas desert. I was actually lost when I took the picture but I just could not pass up capturing the view before I found my way back to my campsite in the dark.
