What to do with 9 days off? Where to go?

Its looking like I am going to get some unexpected vacation after this work week, and I can go where ever I want next Saturday through the next Sunday. 9 days do do whatever I want (within reason financially). It will be a driving trip starting and finishing in Southwest Montana. Here is my criteria:

1)It needs to be less than 2 days driving from Bozeman Montana to the main destination (at least 5 days in an area) I dont want to drive for 9 straight days

2)Needs to be substantially warmer than it is here (very near Yellowstone and very much still winter)

3)Outdoor activities are a must. Hiking and camping are a must have

4)Photographic opportunities

5)Nice un-winter like weather

6)It must be fairly warm


My ideas so far are northern California including Redwoods and the Moab Utah area. I've been to Utah, but I've not seen enough, I have not been to Northern California. What other options should I consider? I really need a break from winter and my options are kinda limited because of the need to drive.

Thanks for any advice, I'm so excited its hard to think about it all!
