About Idaho

Idaho Topographic Regions Map Topographic Regions Map of Idaho.

Idaho FlagIdaho is a landlocked mountainous state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

It shares a short border (72 km (44.7 mi) at 45th parallel north) with the Canadian province of British Columbia in north. The ridges of the Bitterroot Range define its border with Montana.

It also borders the U.S. states of Wyoming in south east, Nevada and Utah in the south; and Washington and Oregon in the west.

The United States acquired the area of Idaho through a treaty with Great Britain in 1846. Idaho Territory was organized from parts of Dakota, Nebraska, and Washington territories on 3rd March 1863, and included parts of present-day Montana and Wyoming.

Idaho was part of Oregon Country, it was explored by Lewis and Clark in 1805 and was crossed by the Oregon Trail that ended at Fort Vancouver in Washington.
Idaho joined the Union at 3rd July 1890 as the 43rd state.

Idaho covers an area of 216,632 km² (83,570 sq mi) [1] the "Gem State" (its nickname) is somewhat smaller than the island of Great Britain (229,848 km²) or about half the size of Iraq (438,317 km²).

Rivers, mountains, and farmland dominate Idaho's landscape, which includes a portion of the Rocky Mountains. The Bitterroot Range, a subrange of the Rockies, runs along the Idaho-Montana border. The Salmon River Mountains are covering most of the central part of the state.

Idaho's highest point is Borah Peak at 3,859 m (12,662 ft), located in the Lost River Range, another subrange of the Rockies. In the southern part the Snake River Plain dominates Idaho's landscape, the flat, arc-shaped depression covers about a quarter of Idaho, on its course through the plain, the Snake River has created many canyons and gorges. Within the Snake River Plain is the Craters of the Moon National Monument, a vast flood basalt area with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush midway between Boise and the Yellowstone National Park. The three major lava fields are the result of volcanic eruptions between 15,000 and 2,000 years ago.
