Postcard Swap: Idaho 8 of 50

This arrived in yesterdays mail, it got here quick!
The back of the postcard:
State Capitol: Boise
Idaho is the #1 producer of potatoes (about 27 billion annually) as well as trout and lentils.
Idaho has 3,100 miles of rivers - more than any other US state. The deepest river gorge in North America is Hells Canyon in Idaho. At 7,900 feet, it's deeper than the Grand Canyon. Shoshone Falls (near Twin Falls, Idaho) drops 52 feet further than Niagara Falls.
State Bird: Mountain Bluebird
State Fish: Cutthroat Trout
State Flower: Syringa
State Motto: "Esto Perpetua" (Let it be perpetual)
State Tree: Western White Pine

Every week a family from a different state sends out their postcards (in theory we should receive 1 card each week). Click the Topic link "Postcard Swap" below to see the other cards we have gotten so far!
