Shopping Mountain Man Style

I loved shopping at the rendevouz! Everything was very authentic to the period when the mountain men would gather to trade their furs and hides for the items that they needed in exchange. Sometimes money would be exhanged but mostly shopping was done by trades. Many of the tents that were pitched inside Fort Bridger were the tents of traders. The photos on my blog depict what it may have looked like in those days. Enjoy this glimpse into the past.
