For our 45th anniversary next week, we just decided to take a short (1-2 weeks) RV trip to somewhere cool but don’t want to have to drive very far. We like places like Estes Park, but from us (Grove, Oklahoma) it is 775 miles away. Is there a place in the mountains or cooler temps you all could recommend? We will default to Waco, Texas and do the Magnolia/Fixer Upper sites which is only a little over 400 miles. I already had that trip planned, including Harvest Host stops, but the heat is stifling right now so I’m about to change my mind. Thanks for any info you will share.

How about Eagle nest New Mexico it’s up in the mountains in northern New Mexico and others are several other places up there too but anyway it’s a good place we’ve been there a number of times

GREAT IDEA! Any specific RV park or campground you’d recommend there?

Angel Fire would be a wonderful Anniversary spot.

You can't beat Santa Fe and we always stay at Santa Fe Skies RV Park.

Taos should also be considered. We stay at Taos Valley RV Park.

We will be going back to Santa Fe in early September, and I'm sure we will include a trip to Taos on the old High Road to Taos.

Edit to say, Sorry, but I don't see any cool mountains any closer to Oklahoma![emoticon] Not much further to Estes Park. I still recommend Santa Fe.

Golden eagle RV Park in Eagle Nest New Mexico. Stayed there several times. It’s centrally located.

Davis Mtns in far west Texas. After you get up off the floor laughing thinking west Texas in summer...few things to know. With the elevation change and the arid desert mountains, it's generally 10-15 deg cooler than anywhere else in the state.

#2. Fort Davis. Cool old area to expore

#3 Balmorreha State Park. natural spring fed swimming pool. Great place to cool off during a hot day

#4 McDonald Observatory. Several nights during the month they have several star watching parties where they bring out several bigger size telescopes and let you look thru them.

Well, after looking at Google Maps to see where Grove OK is....you're kinda stuck trying to find a cool place to go that doesn't involve a lot of driving. It's 750 miles to the smoky mountains, 750 to Colorado/NM area, 750 miles to Gulf Shores AL...pick your poison

Courage is the feeling you have right before you fully understand the situation
