Green River Rendezvous Downtown in Pictures

July 12, 2016

Sublette County sure does like to get dressed up and walk, run, drink, throw, paint, sing, eat, lift, spray, play, fish, pray, pose, joust, knap, bake, bend, snap, rope, steam, cook, buy, sell, shave, auction, ride, gallop, drive, roll, baptize and dance thru our four day Green River Rendezvous celebration.

Keegan Hankins asked if he could tag along on my mountain man interviews and learn the reporter biz, so I put him right to work on Traders Row.

"Terry and I started at the wood burner; the mountain man burnt kidsí initials into wood guns. He used a piece of glass to focus the sun to make the beam hot enough it would burn wood. He said, "I have been doing this for 30 years." So we moved on to a guy who liked to teach kids to throw tomahawks. I took a turn myself, but the first time I missed. A few more times I missed then one hit the target but it didnít go into the target. The tomahawk guyís name was Don; he was from Utah. Then we went to Timís root beer shop. I tried the vanilla cream; I liked it so much I got a green $5 bottle of vanilla cream. Then Terry asked me what we were missing in our interviews. I thought for a minute and then asked, "women"? "Yep," he said. "So what are we gonna do"? "Go look for women,"? I asked? Terry pointed at the back of someone with long hair and said "that looks like a girl right there," so I asked her what kind of Sasparilla she liked and I think she said Birch." Her name was April Grover. After that Terry had to go and work fast with his camera and interviews, so I went and shopped at Traderís Row.

Sylvia was making historic quality tintype photographs at her booth that she thought might keep the image for 200 years or so. "I saw a 19th century photograph and I wanted to do one myself," she said.

Hailey Harber had a booth selling the nicest silver jewelry this side of Taos. "My grandmother collected these pieces for most of her life," she said. "Pretty much all of them are at least 100 years old."

Logan Bing seemed to be spending money like he won the lottery. "I bought a $14 cream soda, then an $8 birch and cream soda, and then I bought this $10 sword," he said. "I have a lot of money left."

Kim Clark from southern Arizona was selling Navajo art painted on flat rocks. "A 14 year old boy and a 15 year old that live along the rim at Canyon DeChelly painted those authentic symbols on the rocks for this trip," she said.

The Harber family was giving away a stroller full of kittens in American Legion Park. "We have a Rainbow Unicorn," said Elliette. "We also have a Tiger Lily that we thought was a girl," said Agnes.

Lynn Babcock seemed to have the greatest selection of baked goods of the whole event. "I got up at 3:00 am to start making all this," she said. I pleaded starvation and poverty and Lynn fed me a rhubarb crisp to keep me going with my interviews, and I still owe her $1.50 for it.

Right about then, our new sheriff K.C. Lehr gave me a ring back. I had wanted to confirm the new sheriff uniform. "I havenít formally announced it yet," he said. "But, yes, the rumor is true. Everyone in the department can wear cowboy boots, hats and Leviís as long as they are professional looking. They have to buy their own Leviís though."


The Corral Bar was serving Kimís famous Bloody Marys. "I made 20 gallons," she said. "Iíve been doing this for 15 years. They were voted best in the county."

Little Annie Tibbets was in The Cowboy Shop trying on hats. Sheíd put one on and then shake her head wildly as if she was on a bucking bronc. Annie was in town from Nevada visiting her aunt and uncle, Wade and Kyndall Tibbets.

Mary Lankford was helping with the beard shaving fundraiser and watched me counting bidders. "We have a couple bidders who are very generous," she said. "They buy a lot of hair."

Thus, with a bunch of freshly skinned mountain man hooting outside Stockman's, this years events ended Sunday evening.

Finally, a big thanks to my student journalist, Keegan Hankins. You did real good, Pard.
