Rendezvous Weekend

This labor day weekend we attended the Fort Bridger Rendezvous here in Wyoming. It is a mountain man rendezvous in celebration of the Fur Trade Era that occurred in the Rocky Mountains between 1825-1840. It is one of the largest mountain man gatherings in the nation. People dress up in mountain man outfits and we even saw a man in chaps yes chaps! The women wore pioneer looking attire with bonnets. Many demonstrations were held. Elise's favorite one was, the candy canon. Native American dancing was a highlight and seeing all the people camping in their tepees. The food wasn't bad either, we enjoyed buffalo burgers, cream soda and a funnel cake. Enjoy some pics!
