I think its misconception. u.u sad as it is, everyone expects forests and oceanic photography sunsets to be the most 'dazzling'. They are so wrong T.T We gotta enjoy the little things in Utah, and sunrises and sunsets are an extra bonus!
they are most beautiful in places with the most pollution...sadly. so that part of why the desert is more beautiful because we dont have so many trees to clean the air, but also its because there is nothing to hide it ^^
