Bison gather in the winter along the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park. Their thick winter coats protecting them from the dangerously cold temperatures known to frequent Yellowstone in coldest months of the year. Named for the steam rising from the valley floor surrounding it resembling fires and campfire smoke, “holes” were simply valleys used by trappers in the fur trade. This area, known by the first fur trappers was simply known as the “Fire-hole” a name that stuck for the river flowing through this beautiful area.
