Idaho [1] is a state in the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Idaho is a rugged state, with 10,000 – 12,500 ft plus (3000 – 3800m) snow-capped mountains, whitewater rivers (one running through the deepest river canyon in the U.S.), dense forests, high desert, and plenty of wilderness. Most of the land north of Boise is National or State Forest all the way to the Canadian border. Wilderness and wildlife are some of the greatest treasures of Idaho.
North Idaho is considered to be part of the Pacific Northwest and is in the Pacific timezone. Approaching Idaho from Washington state to the west, it is where the rolling grain-covered hills of the Palouse give way to several mountain ranges including the (Rocky) Mountains. North and Central Idaho are also frequently referred to as the Idaho Panhandle. Southern Idaho is considered to be part of the Intermountain West, and is in the Mountain timezone. Southern Idaho is the major agricultural and population center of the state. By long usage and local custom, northern Idaho is referred to by all Idahoans as “North Idaho.”
