The state of Idaho is bordered by six states: Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, and Utah. It is well known for its rocky mountains, rolling hills, steep canyons, and snow-capped mountains. With less than 1.3 million residents, it has an area of 83,000 square miles. Mining plays a big role in Idaho, as well as copper, silver, and tungsten. Idaho grows 1/3 of the nation's potatoes, and earned the nickname the "Spud State" because of this.
