What Bert Has To Say About Pocatello Metro Area

Pocatello is a major transportation, agricultural and education center for southeast Idaho. It lies at the convergence of the irrigated Snake River Valley and major transportation routes between the Pacific Northwest and the rest of country through the Salt Lake area. Idaho State University provides some college-town flavor, 13,000 students and 3300 jobs. But the town is mostly nondescript with an unattractive strip of trucking and agriculture-related industries spreading for miles northwest of town. This, plus the low dry mountain backdrop, gives a less attractive setting than one might expect for the region.
