Welcome to Idaho


While that may have been a setback for the agriculturally deprived young state, it is a golden opportunity in the modern recreation economy. Over 60% of the state is public land, and with 3.9 million acres of Wilderness, it's the 3rd-most wild state in the union – and mountain lovers are beginning to notice. The outdoor industry now brings six times as much cash into Idaho as do its famous potatoes.
