Soapstone Bowl

1000 years ago, mountain-adapted people hunted bighorn sheep, dug abundant root crops, harvested whitebark pine nuts, and constructed small villages at over 10,700 feet elevation in the Wind River Mountains. They used bowls carved out of rock, such as these that are on display at the Museum of the Mountain Man.
