Pocatello, Idaho USA

This southeastern Idaho city is located in the western foothills of Idaho’s Rocky Mountains and sits along the historic Oregon Trail. Pocatello got its name from a Shoshone Indian chief who granted the railroad a right-of-way through the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. The coming of the railroad provided further development of Idaho’s mineral resources and “Pocatello Junction” became an important transportation crossroads as the Union Pacific Railroad expanded its service. Now this railroad town is home to a Fort Hall Replica. Aside from its rich history, Pocatello is now a city of over 54,000 people, making it one of the state’s largest cities.

Pocatello is also proud to be the home of the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo and holds many other festivals and events throughout the year.
