Mountain Man Rendezvous

Each year, Fort Bridger hosts a Mountain Man Rendezvous. For those of you who aren't familiar with the phrase it is a gathering of people from all over dressed in authentic time-period garb (mountain man, Indian, Military, Saloon girls, pioneers, etc...)  and buy, sell, and trade goods, most of them being hand crafted.  There are tents and teepee's (also authentic) set up all over of different shops selling everything from animal furs, guns, clothing, cooking supplies, and trinkets of all kinds. WE absolutely LOVE going. Brent has gone every year for the past 20 years, but I'm catching up with year 2 for me! My mom and Pop love to go as well, and we enjoyed spending time with them! Maybe they will dress up next year. 

We get so in to the atmosphere; there are so many unique people, good food, and so many things to do!
