Idaho’s greatest claim to fame is that it adopted the only state seal designed by a woman. Click here to learn its fascinating history and how it was recently glamorized by the state Legislature.

Idaho also has quite a few other great claims:

  • The deepest river gorge in the North American Continent is Idaho's Hells Canyon - 7,900 feet deep. Yes, it's deeper than the Grand Canyon.
  • The Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is the largest wilderness area in the 48 contiguous states - 2.3 million acres of rugged, unspoiled back country.
  • One of the largest diamonds ever found in the United States, nearly 20 carats, was discovered near McCall, Idaho.
  • The world's first alpine skiing chairlift was (and still is) located in Sun Valley ... recognized as the home of America's first destination ski resort.
