Can anyone suggest a backcountry camping area with a great sunset view?

Thanks!

Try the Big Bend Sunset--Best location? topic for starters. I'll have to defer to others for desert backcountry spots, as I've only camped up in the Chisos. SW4 is close to great sunrise and sunset views, but you'll only see trees from the site itself. :icon_cool:

Pretty much anywhere in the desert that's not hemmed in by the terrain will offer a great view of the sunset.
