Idaho

imgFor many years Idahos's most famous industry was potatoes. This changed in the recent years. Today, the largest industry in Idaho is the science and technology sector.

It amounts for over 25% of the State's total revenue. Still, the state\'s landscape is rugged with some of the largest unspoiled natural areas in the United States. The result is: Today's Idaho is both cosmopolitan and small-town friendly.

Boise, the capital and largest city, developed near Fort Boise along the Oregon Trail has grown to a population of 190,000. Since 1990, Idaho\'s population has increased by 386,000 (38%)

Idaho is actually pretty big, if you would flatten the mountains the size would be comparable to Texas. Idaho covers two time zones, runs from Canada to Nevada, and encompasses the western side of the continental divide of the Rocky Mountains.

Idaho is also home to wild horses. They are descendants of domestic horses, which farmers and ranchers in the great depression set free because they couldn\'t afford to feed them anymore.
