Can anyone offer suggestions of small towns with both low humidity and low elevation
My wife was recently diagnosed with COPD. She needs both lower elevation and low humidity
We have looked at Gila Bend, Yuma, Ehrenberg and Quartzite Arizona and Sonora Texas

ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Someplace in Western Nebraska, the Texas Panhandle, or Eastern Colorado/New Mexico. Western Kansas and the Oklahoma Panhandle may be worth a look, too.

How low is low? Most of these cities/towns are ~4,000' or lower.

Nebraska
  • Ogallala
  • Sidney
  • Scottsbluff
  • Alliance
  • Hemingford (if you're a Stephen King fan)
  • North Platte

Colorado
  • Fort Morgan
  • Brush
  • Yuma
  • Wray
  • Sterling
  • Julesburg
  • Holyoke
  • Lamar
  • La Junta
  • Burlington

New Mexico
  • Clovis
  • Alamogordo
  • Roswell
  • Tucumcari

Texas
  • Amarillo
  • Lubbock
  • Dumas
  • Dalhart
  • Canyon

EDIT: St. George, Utah, might also be a good choice.

If you are looking at those places I would suggest Wickenburg, AZ. It's a much nicer small town and not that far removed from the greater Phoenix metro. Really hot but no worse than those other places.

There are some smaller towns between Phoenix and Tucson but they aren't very nice. San Tan Valley is nice but kind of a new development as opposed to a traditional small town.

Coolidge, Eloy and Parker, AZ are lower than that. Florence and Casa Grande are as well but they are somewhat bigger towns.

I'm not sure physiologically that altitude is really an issue until you get to about 3,000 feet but I don't have COPD so I don't know how it would feel for your wife.

Thanks so much
My wife was recently down at 850 feet elevation and her breathing was fine (No need for inhaler)
We currently live at 4400 feet

No doubt, 4400 feet is going to affect your ability to bind oxygen in the lungs even in people without breathing issues. She ought to feel a lot better at lower elevation.
