Idaho

Idaho

Idaho is a state that a lot of people don't know much about and that is expected, the only thing they know is that Idaho is the "famous potatoes" state. Idaho is actually a big state and is adjacent to Washington and Oregon to the Northwest. It is said that if you could flatten all of the mountains in Idaho then it would be as big as Texas. This state has two time zones within itself which runs from Canada to Nevada. It is also encompassed on the western side of the Rocky Mountains. The land in Idaho is made up of rivers, mountains, and farmland. The outside edges of the state are mostly emerald green hillsides, timbered mountains, and beautiful lakes but central Idaho is filled with jagged peaks. The history of Idaho starts with its native tribes such as the Lewis and Clark Expedition along with pioneers on the Oregon Trail. Idaho today is a cosmopolitan, small, and friendly town. Boise is the capital of Idaho which is also the largest city in Idaho.  

The Agriculture and tourism are some of the biggest industries in the state. Their outdoor recreation and scenic opportunities are some of the reasons there are about 20 million tourists every year to visit Idaho. Any part of this state will be a great experience with beautiful views, fun things to do, and friendly locals. Most people also realize that Idaho is unhurried, unspoiled and unassuming which lets people appreciate the state for what it is. The state flower is the Syringa, the state bird is The Mountain Bluebird, the state tree is The Western White Pine, and the state horse is the Appaloosa. Of course the number one national producer is the Idaho Potato but after the potato comes trout, Austrian Winter Peas, and Lentils. Some of the largest cities include Boise, Nampa, Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Meridian, Twin Falls, Moscow, and a few others.

Idaho is the 13th largest state in the United States and produces 72 different types of precious and semi precious stones. Some of these precious and semi precious stones can only be found in Idaho and nowhere else in the world. This is also why Idaho is known as the Gem State. The weather in Idaho are different in each part of the state but for the most part there are chilly winters and very hot summers. The weather is usually influenced by what comes off the Pacific Ocean, the northern part of Idaho usually has more precipitation than the southern part which has the warmest temperatures.
