My girlfriend, her brother and I are looking to do a trip in August. I live in Arizona and almost all of my cooler months are consumed by time in the Grand Canyon. As you can guess the Grand Canyon is miserable in the summer so I don't want to take them there.
I know this is a super broad question but here are some of my must-haves for the trip:
One week of field time (maybe more)
Not Yellowstone (guiding there all of June)
Doesn't have to be a National Park
On trail travel preferred
Those are just a few. What are you favorite or week long dream trips for August out west?
I'm still super super early in the the planning period and just wanted to see if folks had some suggestions of great trips out here.
Thanks in advance!!
