If you have been missing the late sunsets in Colorado, you won't be waiting for them much longer. Starting on March 14, the sun will set behind the Rocky Mountains at 7 p.m. for the first time in 2021.

Daylight Saving Time kicks in at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 14. The sun will rise shortly after 7 a.m. and the sun will set shortly after 7 p.m. For people like me who enjoy the longer evening hours, this will certainly make us happy.
