Fort Bridger Rendezvous 2015

After leaving the Tetons, we decided to spend a week in Green River, Wy, so Gary could fish the Green River.  We just happened to be there over Labor Day which is the time of the Fort Bridger Rendezvous.  Since the fort was only 50 miles away, we decided to go.  What a great day.  We were able to tour the buildings and see lots of artifacts.  The original fort is no longer standing.  The Rendezvous was on the historical site of the fort.  Gary and I felt out of place.  There must have been over 2,000 people there and the majority of them were dressed in clothing that was appropriate to the the time of Fort Bridger.  They had lots of contests going on from shooting to frying pan tossing.  There were also Native American dancers there performing.  Really enjoyed the dances and their clothing.  The fishing was not great, so the Rendezvous really made our trip.
