Suggestions sought

It's Thursday 8/14/14. I'm in the Denver area in my 33' Class C at the Cherry Creek state campground. I have tonight and tomorrow booked here after which I have to leave, and want to leave anyway.

Originally I had planned to head up through Nebraska, spending a night or two there, and then into South Dakota to Mt. Rushmore and Badlands Nat'l Park. I'm rethinking that plan because it looks too hot along that route. By too hot I mean high 80s to mid 90s. Besides the fact I'm uncomfortable at those temps I have an expensive ink jet printer with me and the print heads tend to clog up when it gets hot and dry. If I can't unclog them it's $1,000 and a whole big hassle to get another one.

So, I'm thinking of escaping to some other location. Perhaps the North Fork Forest Service campground near Centennial Wyoming. It's at elevation and cooler, and it's only $5 a night with my senior pass.

I'm asking for suggestions as to other locations I may consider. I prefer inexpensive or free (boondocking is fine but I can only travel roads in very good condition), and need temps to be on the cooler side, under 80, preferably. I love nature and doing nature photography so if there is some nice scenery around that would be great.

I'm thinking of killing a couple weeks time in the hopes that temps will cool down and I can get over to SD Badlands then. I am free to alter my trip plans any way I choose as I'm retired and on a trip of indefinite duration. Oh, I've been in Colorado for about 6 weeks and seen most of the state in terms of nature (Mesa Verde, Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Crested Butte, Steamboat Springs, Rocky Mountain National Park) so I'm looking for things elsewhere, to the north and east (I came from CA).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. I took the attached photo on the west side of RMNP.
