Finley River Mountain Man Rendezvous
There are groups that reenact the days of the mountain man. This generally reflects the period 1830 to 1840 area. It is a period of fur trapping, flint lock rifles, simple belongings and very few of them. The mountain men followed the proven ways of the Native Americans even adopting the beautiful design of the Sioux Tepee.
Teresa and I had a great time wandering the camp and talking to the mountain men (and women). Makes me want to join them...but I can't give up my Nikon.
