    Idaho (ID)

    The solution is to first create an integrated economic development and recreation plan that addresses the needs of the people who live and recreate in central Idaho - Michael K. Simpson

    History & Geography:
    Idaho is the 43rd northwestern U.S. state also known as the Gem State. The state capital of this state is Boise and was formed on the 3rd of July 1890. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.
    The estimated population is 1,654,930 and the state has an area of 83,569 square miles (216,440 km2).
    This state is known for its mountainous landscapes and vast swaths of protected wilderness and outdoor recreation areas. It has Rocky Mountain foothills and bisected by the Boise River, which is popular for rafting and fishing. The city's riverfront Julia Davis Park is a downtown green space containing a rose garden, museums and a zoo.

    Natural Resources:
    Idaho is a chief producer of silver, zinc, lead, and lumber because its mountains and forests have many natural resources; this state produces more silver than any other state. The state also has fertile soil. Irrigation has made Idaho's southern desert region into valuable farmland

    Idaho's chief crops are potatoes, hay, wheat, peas, beans, and sugar beets. Cattle and dairy goods are among the leading agricultural products. Manufacturing has recently supplanted agriculture as the most important sector of Idaho's economy.

    Idaho might be best known for its potatoes, but visitors may not know how versatile the potato can be. It can be used in a variety of ways and in many types of cuisines from French to Irish to Italian and more. Idaho cuisine also finds inspiration in its pioneer past. Hearty meals fit for cattle ranchers and cowboys, like wild game, fish, bison, beef and Idaho's rainbow trout, are still common in Idaho today.

    Idaho's climate is diverse and influenced by weather patterns off the Pacific Ocean. Generally, the northern part of the state receives more precipitation than southern Idaho, which has warmer summer temperatures.

    The US State of Idaho is divided in to 44 counties.
