Arches National Park & La Sal Mountains

Sunset Golden Hour with Moon in Arches National Park
(Caught Between Day and Night!)

When I finished taking the photo in my last post, and was walking back to the car, I looked east and saw this beautiful scene. The orange rocks and the La Sal Mountains in the background were brilliantly illuminated by the setting sun while the moon was announcing that nighttime was close at hand.

Is this what is called the " Golden Hour", almost sun set time,? This is totally wonderful. I love the contrasts, and background with some snow.
