Nevada Desert Sunsets

Nevada high desert sunset

These are my favorite Nevada desert sunset images of 2012.  I’ve discovered that there are certain places where the chances of seeing a beautiful desert sunset are greater than others.  Often when my husband and I go out exploring for the day, I start mid-afternoon looking at my watch and urging him to arrive at a certain destination by a particular hour–depending on the season, weather, and what I witnessed the night before.  Fortunately, he’s a generous man and happy to accommodate my requests.
