I am an avid photographer and my husband and I LOVE traveling together. We usually make it a road trip as we don't really care much for "destination travel". We prefer the flexibility that a road trip provides. We rarely have a hard plan when we go. We know the general area that we're headed to, but rarely make reservations. (There are a few places that almost require reservations though.... Moab for one.) We love exploring the backroads and try to steer clear of the interstates. Some of our favorite areas include western and southern Utah, northern Arizona, Colorado, the Oregon coast, Wyoming and, of course, our home state of Idaho. On average we spend 40-50 days a year on the road and in hotels.
