Idaho's landscape beckons to the adventurous. It was that way long before Lewis & Clark wrote about it in 1805. It was that way in the 1920s and '30s and '40s, when adventurers tested themselves on the Middle Fork, the Main Salmon, and the Snake River.

Writer and world traveler Ernest Hemingway moved to Idaho, charmed by the possibilities; and he wasn't the only man of action to call Idaho home. Dick Dorworth came of age in the 1960s, winning the title of world's fastest skier, writing about his adventures, and inspiring another generation.

Today, adventures take many forms and can be documented and celebrated by nearly everyone with a small camera. Perhaps it's a trip to the top of an Idaho mountain, or to some obscure desert canyon.

Maybe it's a walk around the entire state of Idaho in 100 days. Or perhaps it's an adventure that doesn't quite go as planned.

Outdoor Idaho explores our quest for adventure.
