As one of the Rocky Mountain states within the United States of America, Idaho is a unique place in the country with some of the most beautiful forests, canyons, mountains, and rivers in the entire nation. Almost the entire state north of Boise is national and state forest area, making it one of the last refuges in the U.S. for actual wilderness that hasn't yet been industrialized. The state is known for its Idaho Spuds, or potatoes, and also has had the ill-luck of being the headquarters for the neo-Nazi Aryan Nation when they operated out of their compound north of Cour d’Arlene. However, that doesn't change the fact that this state has some of the wildest beauty available to the nation, and a rich history of agriculture and mining in the Rocky Mountains.
Idaho is split up into distinctly different landscapes. The south of the state is high-plains desert, while the northern section of the state boasts some simply epic scenery, full of mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests. The eastern section of the state is mostly agricultural, with plenty of farmlands designated for growing potatoes and sugar beets around the Snake River. The northern section of the state is wheat and bean crops, as well as logging operations, and is known for its roughneck locals who can sometimes come off as a bit disdainful of visitors, even though it’s just their gruff nature.
There's plenty to do in Idaho, year-round. The state has some of the best ski resorts in the nation, and visitors can also hike the Lewis and Clark Trail or visit some of the various old mining towns in the mountains, or take a white-water rafting trip. The state isn't really known for its cities, although Boise boasts a fairly decent population. Most of Idaho is dedicated to nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, and is perfect for exploring the great outdoors.
