Five Jaw-Dropping Sunset Spots

Who isn’t a sucker for good sunset spot — whether for romantic reasons, photography or just the awe of it all. Orange, yellow, and red skies, filled with misty clouds close out our days often in Greater Zion. Check out these top spots for watching a sunset on your visit to the area.

Washington Fields

Looking over the fields in Washington, Utah, with the buttes and river reflecting a glowing sun, is always a favorite.

Sunbrook Golf Course

The golf course is a great way to unwind with some friends and take in the beauty of the outdoors. Sunbrook is a St. George City course that is worthy of praise, but especially at sunset. Grab your sticks and plan your next round of golf in the evening.

Zion National Park

Zion, oh Zion! We could blog, post, share, and photograph Zion for years (and have) and never find an end to the beauty. This shot taken and titled “Sunset on the Temple” falls in line perfectly as one of the top jaw-dropping sunset spots.

Sand Hollow State Park

With enough color to make a rainbow jealous, Sand Hollow State Park couldn’t be left off the list!  Clear blue waters, stunning red sand, and vistas lend to a stunning sunset every time. Whether you are playing on a boat, recreating in the park or simply taking a walk on the soft beach, make sure you plan a trip that involves a sunset or two.

Angels Landing

Another Zion shot, but we couldn’t help ourselves. Photographer Bill Ratcliffe nailed this one. No further words needed. Enjoy the sunset!
