For the past 10 years, my family has participated in the big mountain man rendezvous in Ft. Bridger, Wyoming over Labor Day Weekend. The fort was established by mountain man Jim Bridger in the early 1800’s for fur tradings between mountain men and native american indians pre 1840’s.
I apologize now for the excessive amount of photos below. I can’t help myself, this year was incredible and I took too many photos.
all the old mountain men always hit on hannah.
saturday evening’s square dance. isaac asked this little girl to dance at the square dance. her name is angela.
mom’s dutch oven cooking is to die for. between the scones, dutch oven desserts and loads of old fashioned candy, i think i gained 5 lbs this weekend.
isaac waking up after 70 mile per hour winds, a thunder storm, and hail during the night.
isaac at the childrens trade. they trade and barter with things they have either made, or received through a previous trade. (and once the trade has been made, you must shake hands.)
my parents have gotten a lot of neighbors into the rendezvous. here are a couple of our WH neighbors.
