Lewis and Clark entered Idaho in 1805. It became a US Territory in 1863 and was admitted to the union as the 43rd state in 1890. It is the nation’s 13th largest state, and has more miles (3,100) of rivers than any other state. It is also home to the deepest river gorge in the US, Hells Canyon. Known as the “Gem State,” Idaho produces 72 types of precious and semiprecious stones, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.
