The first thing to check for here is a vacuum leak. Sometimes it can be difficult to track down broken hoses, but it takes a large vacuum leak to cause a high idle. Check the rubber hoses that connect directly to the intake manifold and throttle body. These are the most likely to fail. The best way to track down a mysterious leak is to remove a vacuum line and block its source with your finger. If the idle speed drops significantly below where it was before you removed the line, then you may have found your problem. Also look at the gaskets and air ducts between the throttle body and the intake manifold. It is unlikely, but you could have a leaking intake manifold gasket as well.
