Jason Tyler Burton wrote the song "Headwaters" and the album with the same title while working as a seasonal park ranger at the South entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The entrance is located near the headwaters of the Snake River. That summer he thought a lot about the river's journey and his own, and how it gave him a sense of belonging during this transitional time in his life. Oliva Weitz has this profile.
