Exploring with the Mountain Men Lecture
Thursday, Sept. 6 at 5 p.m.
Park City Museum Education & Collections Center, 2079 Sidewinder Dr., Park City
When Lewis and Clark returned from their famous transcontinental journey, they reported a vast land filled with beaver and other furs. This attracted a unique group of Mountain Men who in their pursuit of fur riches crisscrossed the west, opening new pathways for future pioneers. Park City resident and pilot, Dorian De Maio, who previously presented his exploration of the Lewis and Clark Trail, once again uses his airplane to follow the travels of the Mountain Men. He will tell of the wild and dangerous life and times of the Mountain Men as portrayed in the movie, ‘The Revenant’.

Satin Steel at State Road Tavern
