Wise River

This tiny town sits at the junction of the Big Hole and the Wise River. The Big Hole was at one time named the Wisdom River by Lewis and Clark after one of Thomas Jefferson’s "cardinal virtues." For some reason, this name didn’t sit well with later settlers and they renamed the river the Big Hole. Perhaps as a consolation, this tributary to the Big Hole was given the name Wise River.
