We drove out during the day, which is actually a luxury compared to our usual post-work departure. It turned out well, because we got there just in time for one of the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen. These photos don't even do the clouds justice - they were the most vivid red possible. I think the red sunlight reflected off the red rocks and got a little extra saturated.
We were camped at the Hidden Splendor Mine site. Most of the mines in the area were uranium mines, but they're closed now. There's still an airstrip there, though it looks more like a slightly run down gravel road. It's also on a low point, with cliffs on three sides, so you'd need a pretty brave or stupid pilot to fly in there.
