As I drove up to the parking area, I saw 3 antelope running across a field.
Persistence paid off! I am so glad that I took a chance and drove out on that 3rd night. Below is a progression of the sunset into the V of Parowan gap. The first photo was taken at 7:13 PM, and the last was at 7:45 PM.
I considered this to be a very sacred moment, and it certainly was for the ancient people who lived here many years ago. Because the sun was close to the horizon, it looked much bigger than it normally would. As I stood there, I opened up my energy field completely and asked the sun, Inti Tayta, to feed me with all of that glorious energy. If you would like to do the same, you can go into a meditative state, focus on the photo above, and pull it in.
Here is the final photo that I took as the sun went down.
