Idaho is made up of many different regions that are all pretty different when you get right down to it.

However, if you are coming to Idaho for an outdoor adventure you are also going to experience outdoor danger. Sometimes this danger is pretty minimal and similarly, there is also the chance that a situation could become life-threatening in the extreme. Idaho is another civilized state just like the rest of them, but there are certain things you can do in it that are not so safe and which can get you in a lot of trouble if you do not know what you are doing or…
