Field Trips

From time to time, the Eastern Idaho Photographic Society goes on field trips that take more time than just an evening meeting. On June 28, 2019, the club traveled to Challis, ID so that, early on June 29, we could photograph wild horses that habitually pass through the area.

There are many other excellent locations for picture-taking in the area around Idaho Falls.In the past the club has gone to many different sites. Members also like to photograph special events. The lists below show some of the places and events, grouped roughly by what you see depending on what route you take leaving Idaho Falls.
