Last weekend we took a spur-of-the-moment drive up to Ogden to check out the Mountain Man Rendezvous at Fort Buenaventura. J had seen a post on Instagram and it looked pretty neat. It was very much like a Civil War reenactment or Ren Faire. Tons of people dressed up and camping on the grounds all weekend. Vendors and historic displays were set up along the property. There is a re-created Fort Buenaventura which was pretty cool.
We had just watched the movie The Revenant about a month or two ago, so this whole era in America’s history was still fresh in my brain. That movie was a beautiful and entertaining flick, and this Rendezvous was really interesting. We would definitely go again someday.
