Jim Bridger - Mountain Man
I struggled with this one, and just had to do a double page to get what I wanted on there. The photos, including the background, were taken at Fort Bridger in 1999 when we were there. I got the photos of Jim Bridger out of a book about him that I bought. He was my great-grandfather Bridger's first cousin.
The journaling reads: Jim Bridger was among the foremost mountain men, trappers, scouts and guides who explored and trapped the Western United States during the decades of 1820-1850, as well as mediating between native tribes and encroaching whites. He is believed to have been the first European American to see the Great Salt Lake, which he reached traveling in a bull boat. In 1830, along with other trappers, he established the Rocky Mountain Fur Company. In 1842 he built a trading post, later named Fort Bridger. Places named after him include: Fort Bridger, Wyoming; Bridger, Montana; the Bridger Mountains; and Bridger-Teton National Forest.
