Senior Summer Destination in Southwest

We are looking for a place in the southwest to go in the summer to escape the heat, crowds and enjoy the great outdoors. We like to hike, kayak, explore, utv, shoot sporting clays all in moderation and just grow older in cool comfort. Any ideas would be appreciated!

I was writing this and then looked and you are in Arizona----do you mean southwest?

The higher elevations Northern Arizona (Flagstaff, Sedona) would be dry and certainly cooler than Phoenix or Tucson (which has a world class skeet and trap set up---but it will be 100 degrees in the summer). Same is true in New Mexico, higher elevations North (Cimmarron, Angel Fire, Farmington, Raton) in these states, less populated. Very outdoorsy these places---less populated than the southern parts of the states. But they are popular in the summer for all your reasons for wanting to be there.

There are nice places in San Diego on the coast as a matter of fact along the California Coast---but it's tough to beat the crowds there. I cannot reccomend RV facilities altough I have been to the places a lot---havn't RV'd there. Morro Bay south to San Diego---take your pick. Hot inland but cool on the coast---not so humid.

Thanks for your reply. We have spent the last 50+ years living and RVing in California N & S, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oregon and Washington extensivly but always in the main stream places. We are always looking for utopia, that out of the way place no one has found yet. I honestly don't think there is a road in California or Arizona that we have not traveled and a million wonderful places to RV but seldom without crowds, so we rule that out. Cimmarron, Angel Fire, Farmington, Raton are worth another look and Ruidoso and Cloudcroft are very nice. We are kind of worn out on the local Arizona White mountains but do like the Show Low area best. I guess we are just jaded having spent the better part of our life on the left coast. But at our age Southern AZ is just to hot for the next three months so off we go looking for that magic place, maybe Colorado still holds some secrets!

If you want to see what man made go East, if you want to see what God made go West!
