Rendezvous Back in Time

The American Heritage Festival, Mountain Man Rendezvous and the Tooele Gem and Mineral Society’s Gem and Mineral Show descended upon the Dow James Recreation Complex in Tooele this past weekend.

The rendezvous provided a look at the mountain man lifestyle, complete with traders, a black powder shoot, bow and arrow shooting and a frying pan toss.

On Saturday and Sunday, the American Heritage Festival brought scenes from the Revolutionary and Civil wars to life, basing its displays on the contents of letters, journals and diaries from the various time periods represented.

The Gem and Mineral Show, held inside the Dow James Building, included a drawing for a hand-knapped obsidian knife in addition to its displays of various precious gems.
