Before the snow starts to fall and venturing outside of a warm house seems impossible, now is the time to get out and explore the great outdoors that Idaho has to offer.

But it can be an intimidating task to find the spots worth going to. Luckily, Linda Lantzy and Shari Hart have done the legwork and found the places throughout Idaho to visit. Towering peaks, gorgeous waterfalls and rolling fields are just the tip of the journeys found in this new book.

“Discovering Idaho’s Scenic Drives & Backroad Treasures” is a collection of 48 different routes geared toward photographers and sightseers. All of the routes are reachable by car, author Linda Lantzy said.

Lantzy has worked as a scenic photographer for 12 years and has found all of the most gorgeous spots that highlight the beauty of the Gem State.

“Exploring is the fun part of the job,” Lantzy said.
