Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Stagecoach sunset

A Stagecoach sunset at the country music festival

When temperatures soar into the triple digits at Stagecoach Music Festival, many country music fans long for the sun to go down for two reasons. A Stagecoach sunset provides much needed relief and brings on the cooler evening. Unlike the humidity found at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee, the desert gets cool at night.

Of course the scenic beauty is another reason. At Stagecoach the sun disappears over desert mountains, palm trees, and a giant Ferris wheel.

It is a great way to top off the day, but the best part has just started as usually the best music is usually scheduled for the evening. When the sun goes down the time is ripe to come out from under the shade and hear some great tunes from the likes of Dwight Yoakum, Charley Daniels, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, and many more.

This trip was sponsored by Toyota, but the thoughts and pictures are my own, and the beauty of mother nature was provided compliments of a Stagecoach sunset.
