The era of the Mountain Man, in the early 1800s, is celebrated in Montana each year by reenactments of what life was like at that time. In 2018, a mountain man rendezvous is scheduled for August 3-12 in West Yellowstone, Montana. This event is free to the public, 9:00-5:00 daily. Called the Smoking Waters Mountain Man Rendezvous, this event features demonstrations and seminars related to trades and crafts of the fur trade. Storytelling, beading, leather work, knife throws, bow shooting, and more. This is all very cool!
