About Idaho

Idaho is a rather unknown state of the United States, even for Americans. Its nickname is ” Gem State “, in English “gem state”, but many Americans associate it more with potatoes, since agriculture and potato cultivation in particular play an important role here.

Economically and in terms of population growth, the very sparsely populated state is one of the promoters in the United States. In addition to the Idaho Patatoes, wheat, barley, sugar beet and even wine are also grown here. There are also numerous companies with cattle farming and dairy farming.

Due to the scenic beauty of the mountains of the Rocky Mountains and the many outdoor opportunities, tourism is also booming. Thanks to its tax policy and low maintenance costs as well as the pleasant business climate, Idaho has also become a very popular location as a company headquarters in recent years. Numerous high-tech, information technology and chemical companies and corporations moved to Idaho.

Research and technology are also well represented. In addition, there is mechanical engineering, the wood and paper segment and the mining of mineral resources (including lead and silver).

Idaho borders the Canadian province of British Columbia and the U.S. states of Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. The main religions are the Mormons, the Catholics, the members of the Assemblies of God and the Methodists. In terms of area, Idaho is slightly smaller than Great Britain and ranks 14th among all U.S. states.

The people of Idaho are considered conservative, friendly and helpful. As the Red State, the state supports the Republican Party. Over 90% of residents are of European descent (as is so often the case in the United States, the strongest group is German-born Americans). Almost 10% are Latinos, otherwise there are only very small ethnic groups of Indians, Asians and African-Americans. A very well-known indigenous tribe in this state are the Shoshones, who, according to opinion heard in many places, gave the state its name: Ee dah how, roughly translated means: light on the mountains.

Snow covered peaks, forests and waterfalls

Large parts of Idaho are hardly accessible and difficult to access. Almost half of the state is forested. Here the natural landscape is still preserved and attracts more and more outdoor enthusiasts to the state. Large parts are characterized by the Rocky Mountains, the highest point in Idaho is Borah Peak at 3,859 m. Southern Idaho is dominated by the plain of the Snake River Plain.

Even deeper than the Grand Canyon is the Hells Canyon, through which the Snake River runs and as the 2,438 m deep gorge is the deepest of its kind in North America. Another scenic feature are the Shoeshone Falls, which flow down at a height of 65 m and are higher than the Niagara Falls. Well-known mountain ranges are the Sawtooth Range, the Salmon River Mountains, the White Moutains, the Bitterroot Range and the Clearwater Mountains.

In addition to the Snake River, there are other important rivers in the mountain state such as the Salmon River, the Clearwater River and the Clark Fork River. Some of the lakes shape the country’s landscapes, such as Lake Coeur d’Alene, which is popular in summer (48 km long and between 1.5 and 5 km wide in northern Idaho), Lake Pend Oreille (at 351 m, the fifth deepest lake in the USA) and the Priest Lake.

The Sawtooth National Recreational Area also has numerous lakes, such as Alturas Lake, Petit Lake, Redfish Lake and Sawtooth Lake.

The Idaho Territory was not created until 1863, however, the area (which was populated with a few thousand Indians) had previously been explored by the expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805. When the gold rush in California attracted masses of settlers, many crossed Idaho but only a few stayed here. For example, the population is still one of the lowest of all U.S. states, with a trend from California to Idaho having emerged in recent years (particularly because of jobs, a tolerable climate, and low real estate and living expenses).

Idaho was created in 1890 as the 43rd state of the Union and is now a real insider tip for both vacationers and immigrants. The capital Boise in particular is known for its high leisure value. Other cities in Idaho are Nampa, Meridian, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Caldwell and Coeur d’Alene.
