There are many who search the web for property in Idaho, which is quite a broad set of terms. It's a broad set of terms whose words act like a sponge, each one absorbed with various possibilities. The word Idaho itself connotes images such as broad flat plains, hills, valleys, mountain ranges, miles of river, tall evergreens, clear skies, snow, lakes...wildlife. Among Idaho's vast rich resources, recreation, and scenic beauty lies several hidden gems, these small cities and towns that dot the countryside, who seem to tuck themselves behind large peaks and below valleys, attempting to stay hidden and unspoiled.
