The higher the elevation, the cooler it is. I'm currently in AZ at 7500 feet. 49 was the low last night 65 a high. 108 in Phoenix.

Wherever we have never been that has the weather we like. This is true all year.

Agree with going up in altitude. It was 105?in Fy Collins at son's place several years ago. We went up to Long Draw Reservoir at 10,300' and it was 38 at night and 76 during day.

This summer we spent 3.5 weeks in Labrador and now are doing six weeks in Newfoundland. Temperatures have been great
