Photography Tour Overview: Travel Images is headquartered in Idaho, so itís only natural that we should show our clients what our home State has to offer photographically. Among the highlights on our Idaho photo tour are the Boise skyline and other historical landmarks, Bruneau Dunes State Park, Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve, the Sawtooth Mountain National Recreation Area, canyons and fast moving rivers, historic towns, the Central Idaho mountains and white water adventurers on the Payette River etcetera. We conclude the tour with a boat trip on a remote section of the Snake River in Hells Canyon.

Our itinerary . . .

Just a moment, first things first! We suggest that you set your camera clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.

Day 1  |  Boise Landmarks and the Oregon Trail
Our group will meet in the lobby of our gateway hotel in Boise at 12 noon, and we'll start our Idaho photography tour with the included lunch, and a tour preview presented by John. We'll make various stops around Boise before investigating sections of the Oregon Trail.
Near Bruneau Sand Dunes, 1 night

Days 2 + 3  |  Bruneau Dunes State Park, Craters of the Moon, and the Sawtooth Mountains National Recreation Area
Out to Bruneau sand dunes before dawn for the best possible light, then following breakfast we'll depart the Snake River Plain and head for the mountains. First though, we'll detour for some 'surreal' photography at the Craters of the Moon National Monument. On via Hailey and Galena Summit, and at least one more detour for the remnants of a ghost town. We're now in the heart of the Sawtooth Mountains National Recreation Area, and during our stay near Stanley we'll explore lakes, and compose the Sawtooth mountain range behind a series of zig-zag fence shots. A boat trip on Redfish Lake is also included.
Near Stanley, 2 nights

Days 4 + 5  |  Central Idaho Mountains
After an early Sawtooth mountain range photo session we'll coast down the Ponderosa Pine Scenic Highway to the Payette River Canyon. Kayakers and rafters provide good photo ops along the way. A Cascade Lake detour is planned, and on to the resort town of McCall for two nights. During our stay we'll explore Ponderosa State Park, a 'ghost town', and Payette Lake etcetera. You'll love the Payette lake sunsets that occur as we take dinner on the shoreline!
McCall, 2 nights

Day 6  |  Hells Canyon National Recreation Area
We'll round off our McCall region shooting this morning prior to heading onto Hells Canyon on the Idaho and Oregon border. Previous wildlife sightings along the way were Wild Turkeys, a Black Bear and Deer. Photography in Hells Canyon will include the Brownlee to Oxbow section of the Snake River. If you'd like to try your hand at astrophotography after dark, there will be nothing in the way of light pollution out here in the 'boonies'.
Near Hells Canyon, 1 night

Day 7  |  Hells Canyon to Boise
Following breakfast we'll shoot the Oxbow to Hells Canyon Dam section of the Snake River, and rendezvous for a two hour boat trip further up the Hells Canyon. Big Horn sheep are often sighted on these trips, but not guaranteed of course. Then back south along the Snake River via Cambridge, and via rural scenes to Idaho's capital city, Boise. The included dinner on the last night of our Idaho photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action by John.
Boise, 1 night

Day 8  |  Departure day
As there is no photography scheduled for the day of departure, your flight home can be arranged for any time today.
