The Firehole River rises from a tiny lake which lies in a marshy sub-alpine basin along a north-facing slope of the continental Divide. Here in Yellowstone National Park, the cold river runs freely through canyons and vast wilderness fed by mountain snow melt and supplemented by millions of gallons of scalding hot water from the geysers and hot springs that pour into and co-mingle with this cold mountain river. Walking the water's edge, you feel the magical connection as you view the river's many curves and golden, shining mineral-encrusted rock face through shrouds of steamy mist. All temperatures of water can be experienced along this river, as the two extremes mix and meld.

Here opposites collide to create the power of passionate life flow.
