Idaho. More than 40 percent of the state is covered in forest. There are 107,500 miles of river. The terrain ranges from the sharp Sawtooth Mountains in the east to America’s deepest river gorge, Hells Canyon, in the west, the vast waters of Lake Pend Oreille in the north and the lava flows of Craters of the Moon National Park in the south.
And with the hiring of Genny Gerke—the first full-time director of the Outdoor Program—C of I students, staff, faculty, and community members will be able to take full advantage of Idaho and all its natural wonders.
