Rendezvous Grounds

Six of the 16 Rocky Mountain fur trade rendezvous were held near Daniel, Wyoming between 1824 and 1840. It was a time when the mountain trappers got together with the supply wagons to trade beaver furs for supplies. The valley below would have been a scene with camps of hundreds of trappers and thousands of indians who came to meet the supply wagons from the east. The later rendezvous lasted for weeks, with legendary stories of their escapades documented in trapper's journals.
