You gotta admit.....

Glacier National Park
"You gotta admit....." posted by YellowStoneFly aka Idaho Angler at Idaho Fly Fishers blogspot.....if you have ever been to Idaho, it is one of the most beautiful states in the continental US. It actually has more wilderness than any of the lower 48 states. If you have never seen Idaho (and if you do not plan on coming here), you have made a huge mistake in your lifetime travels. Its not only the Idaho fly fishing, which really is wonderful,  but the unbelievable beauty of this state.

Sandpoint, ID lone moose.
There are beautiful golf courses, superb ski areas (downhill and cross country), wonderful wildlife and of course that great fly fishing in Idaho.We have painted desserts to the south near the Utah line. The central core is entirely mountains. Yellowstone Park lies central and to the east bordering the Idaho, Montana and Wyoming state lines. If you have never seen the Tetons or Ole Faithful, you need to go.

For the fly fishing enthusiast, we have the Snake, Big Wood, Salmon, Coeur d'Alene, Kootenai, Moyie, Clark Fork and St. Joe, just to name a few. Lookout Pass, Silver Mountain, Sun Valley and Schweitzer are only a few of our great ski areas. River floats include the Moyie, Clark Fork, Snake and Salmon. There are way too many to name and there are river and fishing outfitters galore. And hiking, OMG in the Panhandle section alone where I reside there hundreds of trails. Just be aware of those large fury creatures call the North American "GRIZZLY".

I am not a snow mobile person, although I have tried it, but I do know there are hundreds of miles of trails throughout the state. These trails are mostly the many old forest service roads which are open and maintained all winter. By the way, with a good GPS, you can reach some great fly fishing water in the summers by using these same forest service roads.

Do come and visit us in Idaho. Whatever your outdoor passion, we can fulfill it in Idaho. If you are an indoors kind of person, we do have a few casinos, but our state is mostly for the outdoor enthusiast. I would suggest staying home or going to Vegas if you want to spend the week indoors on your next vacation. But if the outdoors is your thing, you will not find a better place to spend you next summer (or winter) vacation. Who knows, you could love it so much, you might want to move here permanently like I.
