One of the most amazing facts about our state is that the largest wilderness area in the continental United States resides right here in Idaho. Many Idahoans know this area by name, but don’t realize the enormity of the region itself, or its history. In fact, this region is incredible for a variety of reasons, and you’re about to find out why.
