Rendezvous: Rain or Shine

From Friday through Sunday, the Dow James Building in Tooele City was taken back in time to the Old West days as mountain man rendezvous attendees braved the weather. Those who took part in The Festival of the Old West camped, traded and swapped stories near campfires while the Gem and Mineral Show took place indoors. Group members took on mountaineer roles with names like Wounded Bear and Wooden Knife. Some families brought children for a Native American blessing ceremony while others took part at a musket firing demonstration or gathered goodies shot out of a candy cannon.
