Idaho

I really like living in Idaho.

Idaho is the only state in the Union over which no foreign flag has ever flown.

Some people say that Great Britain had a claim on the Oregon Country but the US never recognized that claim as legitimate.

According to the US Census Bureau, in 2009 the population for Idaho was estimated to be 1,545,801. Idaho's nickname is the Gem State because nearly every known gem has been found there. In addition, Idaho is one of only two places in the world where star garnets can be found (the other is the Himalaya Mountains in India), and is the only place six pointed star garnets have been found.

Idaho ranks in the top 20 nationally for total number of cattle and calves, producing over 2 million head. The number of cattle in Idaho outnumbers the number of people living in Idaho!

For those reasons, and many others, Ritza should come and visit again.

I'll come visit again. We have lots of new things to figure out and lots of things to show each other. And Casey still hasn't met her cousins or the alpaca . . .
