Chiricahua National Monument, Arizona
Chiricahua National Monument in southeastern Arizona is one of those hidden gems of the National Park Service (it's a national monument administered by the NPS) that will truly allow you to "get away". Known as 'the land of the standing rocks' Chiricahua offers great scenic photography of thousands of eroded rock formations, good wildlife opportunities and numerous short trails and/or overlooks which you'll have all to yourself. My favorite short hike is the 3.2 mile hike to Big Balanced Rock.
This shot was taken along the Big Balanced Rock trail just after the sun came up and provided me with nice warm light. Visit Chiricahua anytime this spring, when the weather is nice and you can photograph without anyone else around.
