Nature in Idaho

Idaho is located in the Western United States and belongs to the Mountain States.

Idaho borders the states of Washington and Oregon to the west, Nevada and Utah to the south, and Montana and Wyoming to the east. North of Idaho is the Canadian province of British Columbia.

In Idaho, you can see vast areas untouched by human activity: snow-capped mountain ranges, raging rivers, rapids, large lakes and deep canyons.

Much of Idaho is occupied by the Rocky Mountains. The highest point in the state is Bora Peak (3,862 m).

The largest river in Idaho is the Snake, a major tributary of the Columbia River.

The Snake River on the border of Idaho and Oregon forms Hells Canyon – the deepest (2436 m) canyon in the US (although not as famous as one of the most popular attractions in the US – the Grand Canyon in Arizona). Three hydroelectric power plants have been built in the canyon. Interestingly, during their construction, “fish ladders” were provided, allowing salmon fish to climb upstream during spawning.

On the same river you can see the Shoshone Falls. Its height is 64.7 meters, more than that of Niagara Falls.

It is in the Snake River Valley that the capital of the state of Idaho, the city of Boise, and the largest cities of the state, Nampa, Idaho Falls and others, are located.

The Port of Lewiston, located at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater, although located more than 850 kilometers from the ocean coast, is connected to the Pacific Ocean by navigable rivers. It is the most distant seaport in the Western United States from the ocean.

In Idaho, there is a unique natural monument – “Craters of the Moon”. These are lava fields formed by a volcanic eruption. Their area is almost three thousand km2. “Moon craters” got their name because of the unique landscape, reminiscent of the surface of the moon. “Moon craters” have the status of a National Monument of the United States.

Partially located in Idaho is Yellowstone National Park.

The climate in Idaho is continental, semi-arid. The climate is moderated by precipitation brought by westerly winds from the Pacific Ocean.

In summer, as a rule, the humidity is very low, it is quite warm (the maximum temperature reaches 44°C). High diurnal temperature differences are characteristic (hot during the day and cool at night). It is cooler and more humid in winter, but the temperature does not drop below zero for a long time (although occasionally there are frosts down to -30°C).
