State description

Idaho is a U.S. state in the Pacific Northwest in the Mountain States group. As of 2010, Idaho had a population of over 1,500,000. Among other states, Idaho is the 14th largest by area and the 39th largest by population. The largest city in the state and its capital is Boise. It is home to the state’s main government offices, including the Idaho Legislature.

The main sectors of the state’s economy are agriculture, largely represented by potato cultivation, mining, and the science and technology sector. In the first half of the XIX century, furs were actively mined in this area.

Idaho is an area of amazing nature and sharp contrasts. Here, in a relatively small area, you can find extensive forests, many picturesque cliffs, ice-covered mountain peaks, colorful farmland and uninhabited desert areas.

The population of the state is small, there are almost no major cities and developed industry, which adds to the charm of its beautiful landscapes.

Resort areas are concentrated in the center of the state near the McColl Mountains, in the south-near Sun Valley, as well as in the south-eastern areas, where there are many lakes and hot springs.
