There is some debate as to which variation of the family name, Coalter, Coulter, or Colter, is correct and the issue was further convoluted by Captain William Clark utilizing all three spelling variations during his daily journals. It is unknown whether or not Colter was literate and knew how to write. Two signatures possessed by the Missouri State Historical Society assert that the proper spelling of the family name was "Colter" and that Colter was at least able to write his own name. As a young man Colter may have served as a ranger under Simon Kenton. The outdoor skills he had developed from this frontier lifestyle impressed Meriwether Lewis , and on October 15, , Lewis offered Colter the rank of private and a pay of five dollars a month when he was recruited to join what became the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Prior to the expedition, leaving their base camp near St. Louis, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were away from the main party, securing last minute supplies and making other preparations, leaving Sergeant John Ordway in charge.

At the confluence of the Yellowstone and Bighorn Rivers , Colter helped build Fort Raymond , and was later sent by Manuel Lisa to search out the Crow Indian tribe to investigate the opportunities of establishing trade with them. Colter left Fort Raymond in October, with a pack weighing roughly thirty five pounds not including his rifle and ammunition, and traveled over five hundred miles to establish trade with the Crow nation.

Over the course of the winter, he explored the region that later became Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Colter reportedly visited at least one geyser basin, though it is now believed that he most likely was near present-day Cody, Wyoming , which at that time may have had some geothermal activity to the immediate west.

Colter then proceeded back to Fort Raymond, arriving in March or April Colter arrived back at Fort Raymond and few believed his reports of geysers, bubbling mudpots and steaming pools of water. His reports of these features were often ridiculed at first, and the region was somewhat jokingly referred to as " Colter's Hell ".

The area Colter described is now widely believed to be immediately west of Cody, Wyoming, and though little thermal activity exists there today, other reports from around the period when Colter was there also indicate observations similar to those Colter had originally described. The exact location of Colter's Hell remains partially contested, as the name could have been applied to several different areas prone to geothermic activity.

It is commonly believed that Colter's Hell referred to the region of the Stinking Water, now known as the Shoshone River , particularly the section running through Cody. His detailed exploration of this region is the first by a white man of what later became the state of Wyoming. Colter's Hell of the Shoshone River, just west of Cody, Wyoming Colter's Route[ edit ] It is not known if Colter produced his own crude map that informed Clark's version or if the details were simply dictated to Clark by Colter following his return to St.

Louis after a six-year absence. Clark's original field sketches, drawn on numerous separate sheets that traced the flows of principal rivers as opposed to traditional rectangular or square maps, were shown to President Jefferson in and did not include Colter's Route, as he was still traveling at the time. Ferdinand Hassler. This manuscript provided the details of Colter's Route that were published in Several unexplained geographical discrepancies were printed on the map, including the Big Horn Mountains and Basin being drawn about two times too large, an error believed to be Clark's.

It is likely that Colter never saw Clark's full field maps, as another major discrepancy places Colter's starting point at the midsection of Pryor Creek, as opposed to only geographically likely departing point at the mouth of the Big Horn River. The inaccuracies that plague the map's details of the area between Manuel's Fort on the Yellowstone and the likely location of Colter's Hell have fueled much of the scholarly disagreements surrounding Colter's Route.

In , Colter and Potts set out from Fort Raymond once more to negotiate trade agreements with local nations.

While leading a group of eight hundred Flathead and Crow Indians back to the trading fort, Colter's party was attacked by a mass of Blackfeet numbering over fifteen-hundred. This wound was non-serious as Colter quickly recuperated and left Fort Raymond with Potts once more the following year. In , another altercation with the Blackfeet resulted in John Potts' death and Colter's capture.

John Colter

While going by canoe up the Jefferson River, Potts and Colter encountered several hundred Blackfeet who demanded they come ashore. Colter went ashore and was disarmed and stripped naked. When Potts then refused to come ashore he was shot and wounded.

Potts in his turn shot one of the Indian warriors and died riddled with bullets fired by the Indians on the shore. His body was brought ashore and hacked to pieces.

After a council, Colter was motioned, told in Crow to leave, and encouraged to run. It soon became apparent that he was running for his life pursued by a large pack of young braves.

A fast runner, after several miles the still-naked Colter was exhausted and bleeding from his nose but far ahead of most of the group with only one assailant still close to him. Determined if possible to avoid the expected blow, he suddenly stopped, turned round, and spread out his arms.

The Indian, surprised by the suddenness of the action, and perhaps at the bloody appearance of Colter, also attempted to stop; but exhausted with running, he fell whilst endeavouring to throw his spear, which stuck in the ground, and broke in his hand.

Colter instantly snatched up the pointed part, with which he pinned him to the earth, and then continued his flight.

Continuing his run with a pack of Indians following he reached the Madison River, five miles eight km from his start, and, hiding inside a beaver lodge , escaped capture. Emerging at night he climbed and walked for eleven days to a trader's fort on the Little Big Horn.

After returning from gathering fur pelts, he discovered that two of his partners had been killed by the Blackfeet. This event convinced Colter to leave the wilderness for good and he returned to St.

Louis before the end of He had been away from civilization for almost six years. Lyon, who presented it to Grand Teton National Park in Fritiof Fryxell , noted mountain climber of numerous Teton Range peaks, geologist and Grand Teton National Park naturalist, concluded that the stone had weathering that indicated that the inscriptions were likely made in the year indicated.
