Washington County is in Idaho. Whether you are a potential homeowner looking for a lot for sale or a builder or developer seeking land for sale for your next project, the perfect property for you may be found in Idaho, where nature has bestowed some incredible gifts. The state stretches from the Canadian border southward to Nevada and Utah, and has a varied terrain that includes many mountain ranges, 3100 miles of rivers, and wide-open areas and farm land. Although less well-known than the Grand Canyon, Idaho’s Hells Canyon is deeper, with a gorge dug by the Snake River at 7,993 feet – more than a mile below the west rim near the Oregon border. The Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area is 2.3 million acres of protected area around the Salmon River filled with trails on both land and water. And at 212 feet high, the Shoshone Falls in south central Idaho is often called the “Niagara of the West,” extending 1,000 feet across near the city of Twin Falls. The state government recognizes the value of its natural wonders, both for their tourism benefits and for the energy they supply. Idaho is ranked 7th in the nation for renewable energy generation, drawing hydroelectric power from rivers, and hydrothermal and wind power from the mountain regions. While known for its potato production, Idaho’s economy has shifted toward technology, with a strategic development plan in place to encourage entrepreneurial pursuits and the use of high-tech solutions in industry. Two of its major employers include Micron Technology, Inc. and the Hewlett-Packard Company. The state’s climate varies quite a bit given the differences in elevation, but generally low humidity and summers with cool nights to off-set hot days make the weather in Idaho desirable for a variety of outdoor pursuits. There are several resorts that make the most of the seasons, offering skiing and snowboarding in the winter, and golf and fishing in the summer. The Sun Valley resort in the Northern Rockies of south central Idaho opened in 1936 with the world’s first chair lift and was a playground for celebrities, including Clark Gable, Gary Cooper and Bing Crosby, and remains popular today. Although Idaho has a relatively small population with fewer than 2 million people state-wide, it’s growing quickly and recently ranked third in percentage increase as determined by the U.S. Census Bureau. The larger cities include Boise, the capital, Nampa, Meridian, Idaho Falls, and Pocatello.
