Geography and climate
According to itypetravel, Idaho borders the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north, Wyoming and Montana to the east, Oregon and Washington to the west, and Utah and Nevada to the south.
Most of Idaho is occupied by the southern edge of the Columbian Plateau and the Rocky Mountains up to 3857 m high. In the southwest there is a plateau, the valley of the river. Snake, the state is located almost entirely in the Columbia River basin. Evergreen forests occupy about two-thirds of its territory. In terms of area of national forest reserves, Idaho ranks 3rd in the country. The climate is continental, moderated by western winds. The state is rich in minerals (about 64% of the state’s land belongs to the federal government): silver (the first place in mining in the US), zinc, gold, phosphates, lead. Phosphorites are also being developed.
The leading place in the economy is occupied by agriculture, which is developed mainly in the southern part of Idaho: 35% of the cultivated area (over 1 million hectares) is irrigated. About 30% of Idaho’s area is occupied by farms, about a third of this area is cultivated, the rest and most of the state land is under pastures. The most important product is the potato (1st place in the United States in terms of crops), the cultivation of wheat, barley, sugar beets, and fodder grasses is developed. Horticulture is developed (mainly apple trees). About half of the value of marketable agricultural products comes from animal husbandry, mainly pasture beef cattle breeding.
The main development of industry began in the 40s. XX century and is associated with woodworking, food industry, electronics, non-ferrous metallurgy (Kellogg).
Tourism (Solnechnaya Dolina, etc.).
The lands of Idaho were inhabited more than 14 thousand years ago. By the 18th century Indians of 6 tribes lived here: Kutene, Pandorei, Cordalen, Nez Perse in the north; Northern Shoshone and Northern Paiute are in the south.
After the expedition of Lewis and Clark in 1805–06, trappers explored these lands in search of beaver colonies, and the valley of the river. Snake has become a site of rivalry between Canadian and American merchants. By 1840, the Hudson’s Bay Company controlled the region, maintaining posts for several years serving settlers heading west along the Oregon and California trails.
The USA received Oregon lands, which included the lands of the modern state, in 1846. The first permanent American settlements were founded in 1860 by miners and Mormons, which coincided in time with the discovery of gold deposits and the entry of Idaho into Washington Territory; the independent Territory of Idaho, which included present-day Montana and almost all of Wyoming, was proclaimed by an act of Congress in 1863. When the formation of these territories as independent units was completed in 1864 and 1868, the territory of Idaho was divided into two parts by mountains. The discovery of silver deposits in 1880 and 1884 stabilized its economy.
By 1888, most Idahoans supported the Republican Party, which helped promote the territory’s statehood in 1890. The state constitution had been adopted the year before.
The fall in the price of silver (1888–92) and the panic that followed severely undermined the state’s economy and led to the growth of the influence of the populist party and the activation of the miners’ trade union movement.
With the onset of the 20th century the second period of rapid development of the state and its formation as a nationwide agricultural center, which was interrupted by the Great Depression, is connected; the state received a lot of federal assistance during the New Deal period. During the Second World War, the development of the economy was greatly facilitated by the creation of large military bases and a test site (National Reactor Testing Station).
The current problems of the state are largely related to environmental protection.
