Idaho is a Rocky Mountain state with abundant natural resources and scenic areas. The state has snow-capped mountain ranges, rapids, vast lakes and steep canyons. The waters of Snake River rush through Hells Canyon, the deepest canyon in the United States. Idaho is landlocked, surrounded by the states of Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and the Canadian Province of British Columbia. The capital and largest city is Boise.

The Lewis and Clark expedition crossed Idaho in 1805 on the way to the Pacific. In 1812, Donald Mackenzie, working for the Pacific Fur Company at the time, established a post on the lower Clearwater River near Lewiston. The first permanent, substantial incorporated community was Lewiston in 1861. Idaho achieved statehood in 1890. The economy of the state, which had been primarily supported by metal mining, shifted towards agriculture, forest products and tourism.

Boise, Idaho Travel Guide
Boise, Idaho Travel Guide
Boise is a small city that was once a mining town. Today, Boise is growing into modern city centered around the arts and outdoor recreation. In that way (and many others), Boise is a lot like a smaller version of Portland, although local residents may take offense to that comparison as it seems that they are trying to forge their own identity.
