Inscription.  Jim Bridger (1804-1881), the infamous mountain man, was a celebrated trapper, explorer, outdoorsman, and guide. Extensively traveling and mapping the Rocky Mountain West, Bridger's explorations established many of the trails and passages in Southwest Montana. His other significant accomplishments include discovering the wonders of Yellowstone Park, discovering the Great Salt Lake, and the building of Fort Bridger in Wyoming. A Gallatin Valley legend, a determined Jim Bridger, once again stands in the shadow of the mountain range that bears his name - with his eyes looking west, as they alway had.
