There's nothing like kicking off Labor Day weekend with a trip to the mountains...or the dusty desert. So D and I went to the "mountains" on Saturday, and lo and behold, we encountered some mountain men at the famous Ft. Bridger Mountain Man Rondezvous. This usually isn't my thing, but I thought it would be funny to go, and it was.
First of all, if you ever want to piss off animal-rights activists, this is the place to be:
Miles of fur....
...stacks of skins.
Also the place to be if you want to see a bunch of weirdies dressed like they probably dress in normal life:
Buy some "authentic" mountain man gear:
Big belts are in this season...
And this hat is cool, too, right? If you're Amish?
And my favorite part--the most common view from the (rondez)Vous! Totally ew!
