David R. Stoecklein's latest book showcases the Sun Valley, Idaho area and its stunning surroundings. Readers will enjoy a photographic tour through the mountains and valleys, along the rivers and streams, among the aspen groves and pine forests. Of course, Sun Valley is famous for its historic ski resort, but there is much more to the area that makes it such a rich and inspring environment. The town of Ketchum and the nearby Sawtooth, Pioneer, and Boulder mountain ranges provide locals and visitors alike with a seemingly endless playground.
Many first time visitors come to this area and realize that they want to stay longer. It is not suprising. There is so much to explore here, even more than what David has captured in his beautiful photographs. Waiting for a fish to rise at twilight on Silver Creek, carving wide turns through fresh powder on Bald Mountain, camping next to a chilly alpine lake in the Sawooths, rafting through the churning rapids on the Salmon River, snowshoeing into a yurt to have dinner under a full moon - these are only a few of the many and varied activities that the area has to offer.
The town itself is nestled between several mountain ranges, which present us with spectacular views, sunset, and weather. Each day and each season bring new colors and new scenery, a veritable treasure for any photographer. David has sought out all the hidden spots where the light is magical and the colors are dazzling. Enjoy this heartfelt tribute to one of the world's most pictureque places.
