Idaho joined the United States in 1890 as the 43rd state. People that know what a logger’s boot looks like will recognize it as the shape of the state of Idaho. This is coincidentally fitting since Idaho is well known for its logging. That and mining are two of the biggest industries of the state. The biggest industry of Idaho is found in its potatoes, which likely comes as no surprise to anyone who goes grocery shopping or has cooked any type of potato before. The state’s name, Idaho, most likely comes from Ee-da-hoe, which is an old Indian name for “gem of the mountains.”
Idaho’s rugged landscape and abundance of unspoiled land provides a lot of natural resources as well as outdoor recreation. It’s no surprise that Idaho has sixteen lakes which surely helps add to those resources and recreational activities. The capital of Idaho is Boise and this is also the largest and most well known city in the state.
