The Beautiful Landscape In Idaho You’ll Only See Once A Year

Fun Fact: Does this image look familiar? That’s because this Idaho landscape is so mind-bogglingly gorgeous that Windows turned it into desktop wallpaper nearly a decade ago.

While many people associate Idaho with its rugged mountains and stark rural steppe deserts, those who live here know otherwise. Idaho is home to some of the most diverse ecosystems in the country. But in a landscape made up of endless natural wonders, there are certain places in Idaho where nature just seems to explode with all the magic and colors of the rainbow.

Every year, at the height of spring, there is a little-known sea of enchanting beauty that makes a vibrant appearance in Idaho, only to disappear again just a few weeks later. It’s the annual Camas bloom at the Centennial Marsh Wildlife Management Area near Fairfield, and it is an absolutely mesmerizing sight, to say the least.
