Fort Bridger Rendezvous 2014

Fort Bridger Rendezvous 2014

We are all done with the Fort Bridger rendezvous for this year, and it was another fun time. We met up with our friends, and camped together, and laughed together. Al and I set up a trade blanket this year, which was new for us. Since I don’t want to bead a lot anymore, we had some stuff to sell. It was not as fun sitting in one spot, we usually wander around, but the people watching can’t be beat here. We sold a bunch of stuff, had fun, but I am bushed.
This is our trade spot. Nice and shady.

Find the arrow, Torrey

Find the arrow, Torrey

Back in June, we were camping in a place were we could get out our bows and practice some primitive archery. We have always joked about teaching Torrey to find the arrows, and renting her out at rendezvous. So in one evening, we taught her to find the arrows in the tall grass. She caught on extremely fast, and had a blast doing it. 
Since then, we haven’t been anywhere we could shoot our bows. Until now. We arrived at the site of the Ft. Bridger rendezvous a few days early. It’s nice to get here before the masses of people arrive. I wanted to see if Torrey still remembered what she had learned 2 months ago, would she remember to find the arrows. 
And I am pleased to say, the answer is yes. As soon as I got my bow out she knew what we were going to play. I on purpose shoot the arrows all over, then tell her to “find them”.
(I accidently shot these two close together)
