Norm Nelson painted this watercolor of the Snake River Canyon during filming of Idaho the Movie 2.

Painter and Photographer Norm Nelson knows the Snake River Canyon and the birds of prey for which it’s known better than most.   Norm’s life story is woven into this landscape– a place his father loved and  helped permanently protect.  The Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area is named for Norm’s father.

Norm brought our crews along on an multi-day hike and float through the canyon for a segment that appears in Idaho the Movie 2, a documentary film about Idaho’s wild places,  “You’ve got to remember that when you come to visit the rim of the Snake River Canyon, you’re looking at a place that essentially looks like it has for 14 thousand years.”

During filming, Norm painted a watercolor of the canyon and donated it to the Idaho the Movie 2 raffle for conservation.   The raffle raised more than $1,500 for conservation efforts in Idaho.

Idaho the Movie 2 will broadcast on KTVB/KTFT in Boise and Twin Falls on November 25th, the Friday after Thanksgiving at 7pm.   Airdates across the NW will follow.  Visit idahothemovie.com for more information.

BluRays and DVDs go on sale the very next day, Saturday, November 26ths at all Idaho Costco’s, all Idaho Albertsons stores, Idaho Mountain Touring in Boise and Meridian and at www.idahothemovie.com.
