I have heard of Sawtooth. There is a series on PBS of a woman who has a love affair with the wild mustags and that is one of the places she has mentioned. I also have read about it in books. She was following the story of Cloud, a white stallion.

One time when my son was a paramedic, he went out west to one of the wildfires to relieve a crew for one month. He ended up staying for three. He told me that the firefighters would come in with some serious burns where a large piece of burning wood or other matter would fall on them or get under their protective clothing. He would fix them up and they would go right back to the lines. In civilian life, those burns would have required a trip to the hospital. Most of the men only required oxygen from inhaling too much smoke. And back to the lines. Good Bless Everyone of Them.
