One thing about the American Southwest is the amazing array of escape opportunities. Even though it’s summer in the desert, there’s a way to find a temperature for everyone’s satisfaction.

Several potential summer escapes are ready-to-read at Examiner.com. Even in the summer, there’s water in the desert. Finding a waterside campsite in southern Utah may mean a little bit of a challenge, but there are those waterside campsites waiting.

Arizona has a host of camping opportunities. Many think of the desert as hot and forbidding in the summer–and they are correct. However, Arizona has a wide variety of climate zones, of which the desert is only one. In fact, I’ve been told that Arizona has all of the climate zones found in the world except arctic and tropic. Camping in Arizona provides a variety of opportunities.

One place for cool summer escapes is Angel Fire, N.M. Nearly 9,000 feet above sea level, the setting sun paints the mountain with fire colors–thus the area’s name.

These are just a few of the adventures to explore this summer…in fact, any summer, in the Four Corners.
