Idaho (pronounced /ˈaɪdəhoʊ/) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It borders the state of Montana to the east and northeast, Wyoming to the east, Nevada and Utah to the south, and Washington and Oregon to the west. To the north, it shares a small portion of the Canadian border with the province of British Columbia.


The name "Idaho" is thought to be derived from the Shoshone language term "ee-da-how", which means "behold, the sun coming down the mountain" or "light on the mountains". However, the exact origin of the name remains a matter of debate among historians.
