Take a look at Malhuer National Wildlife refuge if you really want to get away. Southeastern Oregon's high desert is spectacular. Extinct volcano's, marshes, Steens Mtn., world class trout rivers, incredible views in Crater Lake Nat'l Park.
A great place to wander with a camera whether long and fast or wide and slow.
Thanks,Brad I have never been to the Northwest and thought about it but probably want have enough time this go-around to make it worth while.

If you're considering SC, my wife and I like the Lake Marion area. We pull our RV down to the state park there, but there are hotels in Santee. Close by is Santee NWR and within an hour are Beidler Forest and Congaree National Park. If you can find a local to take you out on the lake and swamp areas, there is abundant wildlife there. Many other interesting places nearby also.
Thank you will keep that in mind.

How about Alaska or the Canadian Rockies.
Really want to visit the Northwest and or Alaska, but again probably a little far this time for the amount of time I will have.

How about closer to home? TN's Reelfoot Lake, KY/TN's Land Between the Lakes (Over 100,000 acres), and all the Wildlife Refuges in Western KY/NW Tennessee... big lakes, little lakes, oxbow lakes, and more wildlife than you can shake a snake at. .
I grew up on the Tennessee River and have duck hunted all over the areas that you mention, they are kinda my stomping ground and I visit them with regularity. Thanks but this trip want to go somewhere I have never been!!

So far, there's no oil damage at Sanibel or anywhere in SW Florida. (We're keeping our fingers crossed that a hurricane doesn't blow this horror our way.) Depends on when you're planning to go on vacation.
Thanks much, I was aware of that but right now just couldn,t bear to be in the gulf region, am going to have to go somewhere else this time!!
Thanks to all for the great suggestions so-far. Do not know for sure when I am going or where yet, but will be within next few weeks, and still looking for some additional ideas!!
