This Region In Idaho Is The Very First Of Its Kind In The Entire Country

Idaho was just nationally recognized for something pretty amazing. The International Dark Sky Association officially named a portion of Idaho as the country’s very first dark sky reserve. Idahoans have long been aware that we have the very best night skies which are perfect for gazing up at the stars. Idaho skies are one of the greatest perks of living in the Gem State. However, it’s pretty cool that our wonderful state is getting recognition from the rest of the world about just how awesome our skies are. This amazing region can truly be found only in Idaho!
