Best Sunset in Southern Utah?

I am taking a trip to Vegas to visit some friends and I am trying to do a day hike in Southern Utah. I've been looking all over the internet and it's almost overwhelming how many things there are to see. I wanted to get some opinions about best spots to take pictures of the sunset? I've mainly been looking around Zion National Park but am open to suggestions.

A place I like to go is off a dirt road in the Kolob Terrace section of Zion. It where the sunset jeep tours go.You look back towards Zion across the grasslands.

The thing about sunsets. Its not about watching the sun drop. Its more looking the opposite direction to see the colors of the rocks change in the final light of day.Even sitting on a patio of a restaurant in Springdale you get the effect of the glowing walls of rock.

Here is the jeep tour.

Great suggestion, Dez. I've put that link in my favorites, I was planning on getting to Kolob again this year. Kanarra Creek is still calling!! (:

I was going to suggest Snow Canyon for sunset shots; it really glows when the setting sun hits the canyon walls. www.stateparks.utah.gov/parks/snow-canyon
