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-Off the Beaten Path."

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-Off the Beaten Path" 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.

Please help make this book a reality by choosing a reward and pledging your support.

Some rewards will ship by this summer. Rewards that include books will ship in the summer of 2019.

Hi everyone! Shari and I just wanted to let you know we're working hard on the book. We've written about 5 of the routes, done some more driving, discovered some new photographic opportunities and have increased the routes from 36 to at least 38. More routes may be added as we are just about to begin a very busy travel season verifying route information and discovering more of the great state of Idaho! We've secured 6 of the route sponsors and the designer is working hard on layout. The next update will probably include some peeks at the interior. We are very glad to have met our initial goal, however that was just an arbitrary number and the more we can offset the printing costs the better. Please consider posting a link to the Fundraiser on your own Facebook wall or sending a email to your friends. We still have many great rewards to offer! Thank you so much for your early support.

Hi everybody! This morning we discovered a possible trademarking issue with the name of our book. To avoid any issues down the road we have opted to change the name slightly to "Discovering Idaho - Off the Beaten Path". We like it and hope you do too! We have updated the cover photo to reflect this change.
