Snap a few shots of Idaho's best scenery.

Idaho is home to an endless supply of wilderness and if you’re a photographer, it will be the greatest subject you’ve ever had. Because Idaho (somehow?!) still remains under the radar for most folks, you won’t be shooting the same old scenery that everyone else is and you may even have the best lookouts to yourself. Whether you plan to hike in with your photography gear or you’re just looking for a good spot to pull over and snag a few shots on your phone, Idaho has something for every photographer.
