Museum of the Mountain Man http://wyomingpublicmedia.org en Museum of the Mountain Man - Pinedale http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/museum-mountain-man-pinedale <p>During the years 1824-1840, the Pinedale region was at the heart of the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade, which supplied precious beaver pelts to the fashion industries of Europe and the eastern United States. Mountain men like Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick and William Sublette carved their legends here, and opened the way for the pioneers of the Oregon Trail. The Museum of the Mountain Man shares a comprehensive collection of Rocky Mountain fur trade journals, relics such as Jim Bridger’s Rifle and the finest Native American sheep horn bow still in existence.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 06 Jun 2013 22:06:20 +0000 Museum of the Mountain Man 41908 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Museum of the Mountain Man - Pinedale
