John Colter (c1770-c1813), American explorer and mountain man, discovering the Yellowstone region, 1807–1808. Colter was the first of the mountain men who, pushing into the unknown in their search for beaver, opened up the wilderness of the Far West of America. After one short winter in the mountains as a guide to two beaver trappers, Colter trekked through uncharted land becoming the first to see hot springs, boiling mudholes and geysers in the region that would later become Yellowstone National Park.
