Red Tail - The Colorado Mountain Man will take you back in time on both Saturday and Sunday at noon on the Pavilion Lawn, with his authentic and historically accurate presentation on the mountain men and their experiences with the Indians, the wildlife native to Colorado and the hardships of their wilderness experience. He relates facts, tales and Colorado history and cultural heritage as well as touching on environmental and ecological issues past and present. Red Tail 's show-n-tell, question and answer format allows his audience to see, hear, feel, and smell what it was like to live in the Rockies in the early 1800s. You are invited to join Red Tail as he packs his trappings and accoutrements into your gathering or campfire on his old burro "Bambino" and discharges his musket to start your "Rendezvous" with the past.
