Jim Bridger
One of America’s greatest frontiersmen, Jim Bridger has been called the “Walking Atlas of the West.” When Lewis and Clark returned from their expeditions, the explorers’ tales of abundant beaver supplies in the Louisiana Territory sent a rush of trappers westward, including Bridger.
 
Joining a fur-trapping expedition in 1822, he spent the next 20 years exploring new territory, and blazing early paths across the West. The first white man to see the Great Salt Lake, he was also the first one to discover the scenic wonders of what would later become Yellowstone National Park. His vast geographical knowledge proved valuable in planning overland stage routes, including the Oregon Trail.
 
When the fur trade began to decline in the 1840’s, he established Fort Bridger in southwestern Wyoming. A supply station for emigrants traveling westward on the Oregon Trail, the fort also served as a fur-trading post, and later as a post for the U.S. Army.
 
Bridger climaxed his useful career by becoming a scout, guiding numerous exploration parties, as well as military expeditions for the U.S. Army. Bridger National Forest in western Wyoming commemorates his contributions to the development of the West.
