One of eight Rocky Mountain States, its gold and silver deposits brought prospectors here hoping to make their fortunes, leaving behind the ‘ghost towns’ that give colour to Idaho’s romantic history. Yet in later days it claims to mine more silver than any other part of the USA. It’s been said if you flatten all the mountains in Idaho, the state would be the size of Texas. In an area of less than a quarter of a million square kilometres, there are greater forests, deeper canyons and swifter rivers than in many of its bigger cousins. Even the mighty Shoshone Falls on the Snake River, at 61 metres, is even higher than the famous Niagara. Although landlocked, a good part of the region is made fertile by a criss-cross of rivers and dominated by timber and agriculture. Its beautiful and often overlooked scenery make this one of the nation’s hidden gems! Whichever part of this magnificent state you choose to discover, you’ll find spectacular scenery, fun things to do and friendly, helpful people. You’ll also find a place that’s unhurried, unspoiled and unassuming. So linger awhile and discover Idaho.
