University of Idaho One Minute Fly Over

This stunning 60-second aerial highlights some of the Moscow campus of the University of Idaho in the early morning hours on a summer day.

Cradled in the Palouse hills of northern Idaho, Moscow is surrounded by pristine scenery — rolling farmland to the west and the spectacular Idaho wilderness to the east. This friendly and vibrant community is alive with spirit, festivals, museums, fairs, education and recreational opportunities.
