Daylight saving time is set to end Nov. 6, which supposedly is good for our body clocks (more sleep) but bad for those of us who don't want to let go of summer -- or at least not those long summer days. But these places flat-out don't crank the clock back an hour to standard time: Arizona (except the Navajo Indian Reservation), Hawaii , American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Add Saskatchewan, Canada, to the list too. The time change means that on Nov. 6, the sun will set at 4:57 p.m. in Los Angeles, 5:31 p.m. in Phoenix and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; 5:50 p.m. in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and 5:53 p.m. in Honolulu.

Archeological sites that mark the first day of summer can be found around the world. Throughout the Southwest, at places like Chaco Canyon, N.M., special ceremonies are held. At Medicine Wheel, an ancient astronomical observatory in Saskatchewan, Canada, there is a cairn for watching the solstice sunrise.
