If you mean the Southwest USA, the storage/bone yards that I have visitied were Mojave, CA (probably the largest and most famous), Victorville, CA (also had quite a few planes), Goodyear, AZ (just had DC-10s to be converted to MD-10s), and Las Vegas, NV (had a few planes, mostly Uniteds). Personally Mojave was my favourite, as you can get right up to the planes and there is a large number of planes. Also Las Vegas was pretty good for taking pictures. It is sad though, to see these planes sitting out in the desert, some that will never fly again .

I've been to Maxton,NC-they had 3 ex-NWA 747-151's. I was taking pic's from outside the fence when a man invited me inside to take pic's! I got to walk under and around for as long as I wanted! I've also been to Las Vegas and Mojave,CA and Tucson AZ and Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson-a must for 707/720 fans! In 2001 I want to go to Phoenix/Goodyear and Kingman,AZ during my Las Vega$ vacation in June.
Look for my pic's in Airliners.net

I've been to the boneyard in Tucson. It's on Davis Monthan A.F.B., and it houses 5,000+ military aircraft, along with some 707s(which they are using as canibalized spares for the Air Force's KC-135). It's an amazing site, with B-52s as far as the eye can see......
