Idaho is in the
northwestern part of the United States. Bose, the capital, is the most populated
city. Idaho is known for scenic areas, which include snow-capped
mountains, canyons, lakes and rapids. Shoshone Falls is higher than
Niagara Falls, and Hells Canyon is deeper than the Grand
Canyon. The nickname of Idaho is The Gem State because 72
different precious and semi-precious gemstones have been found there.
