Idaho is found in the northwestern United States, just east of Washington and Oregon. It was the 43rd state to be admitted into the union, on July 3, 1890. Idaho is a mountainous state, and is completely landlocked. This does not mean Idaho as no access to the sea, however. Due to a complex system of dams and locks on the Snake and Columbia Rivers, the town of Lewiston is the farthest inland seaport in the western United States. The 14th largest state by land area, but has a population of only 1, 546,000 as of the 2009 census, making it the 44th most dense state out of the 50 states.
