Leaving the Comfort Zone (Morrison) <p>Leaving the Comfort Zone: Mountain Men and the Trappings of a Wilderness Lifestyle</p> <p>Presenter: Ms. Sarah Pickman, Yale Doctoral Student</p> <p>The original mountain men of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries endured physical hardships and isolation while working as trappers or pathbreakers across the American West. Yet by the late nineteenth century, a host of new goods and activities allowed urban Americans to enjoy a taste of the mountain man lifestyle within new middle-class norms around “comfort”: from guidebooks and gear for weekend campers and amateur trappers, to adventure novels for armchair travelers. Ms. Pickman will use mountain men and the recreational travelers who came after them as starting points to explore changing ideas of what it means to truly “live comfortably.”</p> 19192 SH 8 Morrison, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

1830s Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market <p>The 1830s Rendezvous &amp; Spanish Colonial Art Market commemorates the historical blending of the American mountain men and Hispanic communities of Old Bent's Fort. A day at the 1830s Rendezvous &amp; Market is a day in the Old West. Historical interpreters will demonstrate their wares, including trade silver, moccasins, beaver skin hats and buckskin period dress. They will walk guests through day-to-day skills from the 1830s, such as brain-tanning, primitive fire building, rope braiding, blacksmithing and scrimshaw. Oral history and music were very important to the culture of this era, and will fill the courtyard of The Fort, transporting guests back in time. The event also features a Spanish Colonial Art Market that celebrates Spanish Colonial artists demonstrating and selling retablos, bultos, tinwork, and encrusted straw appliqué throughout the weekend. <br /><br />The 1830s Rendezvous &amp; Market is open to the public; admission is $5 for adults, and free for children 12 and under.</p> 19192 HWY 8 Morrison, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
