Idaho’s (not so famous) Ocean Seaport – no really!

Having discovered Idaho on the map only a few years before moving here (yeah, I too flunked that geometry class), I enjoy new discoveries about this wonderful state. For example, we have a ocean seaport – as in navigable by ocean going vessels. Here’s a picture and yes, this is Idaho.

Sure, you have to traverse your ocean going vessel 465 miles inland over eight dams and navigation locks on the Columbia-Snake River System to get to it, but the seaport of Lewiston Idaho is ready to ship your goodies anywhere in the world. I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out why Chicago isn’t a seaport?
