Near Yellowstone and the Bighorn Rivers, John Colter helped to build Fort Raymond with his fellow fur trapping partners like Manuel Lisa. Winter 1807-1808 Colter left Fort Raymond in 1807. He explored what now is Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park, finding geysers, bubbling mudpots and steaming pools of water. He was the first white man to explore this region, and it later became known as Wyoming and Montana Colter's Run After teaming up with John Potts, another fur trapper, Colter and Potts were canoeing up the Jefferson River and were being pursued by the Blackfoot Indians.
Potts was killed, but Colter escaped and ran 5 miles to Madison River where he hid from the Indians. Returning to Civilization After returning to the fort from gathering fur in Three Forks, Montana in 1810, Colter found out that two of his partners were killed by the Blackfoot Indians
He then made the decision to return to civilization after 6 years of being in the wild Who is John Colter? References: Slide One Information: "John Colter." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 2 Mar. 2013. Web. 17 Mar. 2013. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Colter>.
