Imagine Idaho...a land of geological wonders...towering peaks, sagebrush deserts, evergreen forests, pristine rivers, lava flows, deep canyons, rolling farmlands, idyllic waterfalls and beautiful lakes....just a few of the iconic images professional photographer Linda Lantzy and award-winning semi-professional Shari Hart have photographed across the Gem State.

Through their thousands of combined hours of exploring and photographing the state of Idaho, Linda and Shari are sharing their knowledge of how to find Idaho's most photographic scenes in their new guidebook, "Discovering Idaho's Scenic Drives and Backroad Treasures."

If you know where to look, many of these wonderful photographic opportunities can be found just by getting off the interstate. Some locations, however, are far less obvious. As seasoned back-roads artistic photographers, their experiences have led them  to hundreds of photographic gems waiting to be discovered. Among these are old barns, abandoned antique vehicles, and pioneer cabins, along with many other unforgettable locations.

"Discovering Idaho's Scenic Drives and Backroad Treasures" will provide detailed directions to places you may never have imagined. Complete with maps and visual references, photographic tips and top-notch photography, this outstanding guide is the perfect traveling companion for photographers, sightseers and other like-minded Idaho lovers.
To get this beautiful guide going, they are seeking up-front funding to offset a portion of the printing costs. They plan to print in Spring, 2019 or sooner.
Linda's phenomenal artistic photography is coupled with her business acumen and accomplishments in publishing. Her yearly "Idaho Scenics" calendar reaches more than 2,300 customers worldwide. Shari's wonderfully evocative images take her viewers on "visual hikes" that reflect her deep love of the outdoors.

Linda and Shari can't wait to share their knowledge of Idaho's most memorable locations in this comprehensive guide. With a talented designer on staff, there is no doubt this book will be a big success.

We have a new cover and a new book title....here's what happened...our previous cover image was just barely over the state line into Washington, so just to stay true to our Idaho book, we opted to change it. Thank you for all of the input we received on our FB post to choose a new cover image.
Our title, we were saddened to recently learn, is already being used, even though we had researched and filed the trademark for the name, we do not want to be confused with the other title. We do own the trademark for the first title and have every right to use it, but we're happy with our new title and feel it will represent us well. We have also applied for the trademark on it.
If you selected a reward that included a photo of the cover image, you will be able to select either image. Thanks for understanding that this is a work in progress. We hope you like our new look as much as we do!

Book research and scouting routes continues...I recently returned from a loop south through the Idaho Palouse, McCall, Boise to Fairfield and back home via Cambridge. I added several new locations and made some excellent discoveries. This book is going to rock! :)

I've just returned from another trip south, scouting routes for the Idaho guidebook. I got to shoot one evening and morning with Shari near Twin Falls. We'll include this unique view of Shoshone Falls in the guidebook. I don't think I've mentioned before but we are seeking sponsors for each of the 45 routes in the book (Yes, it's grown!) This means we'll tell you a great spot to stop and grab a bite or spend the night, etc. Each sponsor will also have a coupon offer for you! We're very excited at some of the businesses we've got on board so far, like the Snake Pit at Enaville, the Leonard Paul Store at Coolin, The Pie Safe at Deary and the Rogerson Store at Rogerson. You're going to love what these "Off the Beaten Path" sponsors bring to the routes! Please share our GoFundMe campaign with your Idaho loving friends and thank you for your support! Linda

Here's a mock-up of route 1! Just to give you a little peek at the interior. This is not final, but a pretty fair representation. You may have noticed we increased our funding goal. We're not trying to be greedy, but have decided to print a substantially larger amount of books than originally proposed. One of the cool things we have in the works....QR codes for maps! This book is going to rock! Please help spread the word.
