Chances are you don't know Idaho as well as you should. This is a state that balances immense and precious wilderness areas with a culture that's part Old West, part millennial music festival, and part Basque(!). It's a state that combines remote, off-the-grid adventures with some of the coolest small towns anywhere in the country.
