I want to travel to a place high above all the low-level haze of the mid-southern US to get some quality photos of Jupiter, Saturn and perhaps do so e deep sky as well. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions of possibly a dark sky spot out in Arizona or New Mexico with a place to plug in and a solid foundation to image from. I have some time off and have had this dream of doing that.
my apologies if this is not the correct forum to discuss such things. šŸ˜Š
Any suggestions?

Not in AZ now.  There are major wild fires in the state and the monsoons will be coming soon.  I would look into New Mexico sites.

I havenā€™t looked deep into this, but it looks kind of promising.
