Adjacent to Washington and Oregon in the Pacific Northwest, Idaho is a big state. Rivers, mountains and farmland dominate the state’s landscape. Idaho covers two time zones, runs from Canada to Nevada, and encompasses the western side of the continental divide of the Rocky Mountains.
Boise, the capital and largest city, developed near Fort Boise along the Oregon Trail has grown to a population of 220,000. Agriculture, manufacturing and tourism are Idaho’s major industries. Abundant outdoor recreation opportunities and scenic vistas around every turn attract over 20 million tourists annually.
