As the wind blew across the snow, the mountain men made a winter camp without provisions or hope of getting any until they reached the plains where the buffalo roamed. They were living off the land and the deer and elk had fled this high country. 

It was 1829 and Joe Meek was a teenage runaway who had joined this band of men as a hired hunter and trapper only the spring before. The tall Virginian had already been attacked by Indians, lost in the country and had met starvation. However, this new frontier held him and, as he hunkered near the fire, warming his hands and celebrating Christmas, he wasn’t ready to go back to civilization. 

Merry Christmas from the wilderness of Wyoming!
