These 17 Aerial Views of Idaho Will Leave You Mesmerized

Back in the 1800s when Lewis and Clark were trekking their way through the Rockies on their way to the Pacific Ocean, they stumbled across a treacherous and awe-inspiring landscape like no other — a striking combination of rushing rivers, humbling mountains, fear-inducing gorges, suffocating deserts, and millions of trees which we now know as Idaho.

As any adventure-seeker or outdoors enthusiast will tell you, the Gem State’s landscape is beautiful enough when seen at eye-level, but these aerial photos from all across Idaho show just how breathtaking a bird’s-eye view of our great state can be. Ol’ Meriwether and William never saw the panhandled state quite like this…

A picture is worth a thousand words, and with all of its natural splendor, Idaho is quite the novel! Of course, these are just an assortment of submissions that we’ve gotten, so stay tuned for Part II as we seek out the best of the best.
