Idaho is known for it’s potatoes, it’s true; but did you know that Idaho also produces about 85% of all commercial trout sold in the U.S.? Idaho is also number one in Lentils and Austrian Winter peas. Producing more than 70 types of precious and semi-precious stones, lent unto Idaho it’s nickname, “The Gem State.” With about 3,100 miles of rivers, Idaho has more miles of river than any other State. More than 60% of Idaho is public land, with almost 2.25 million acres being comprised of the Frank Church River Of No Return Wilderness. Skiing is also a major part of Idaho, with somewhere around a dozen resorts scattered throughout the State. There may be a lot about Idaho that you might not know, but wouldn’t it be fun to see how well you can identify various places within? Just a side note here, Idaho borders 6 other States as well as Canada. With so many neighbors you can bet we share a feature or two from Yellowstone to Hells Canyon, with one or more of our neighbors…yes, Idaho likes to share.
