Welcome to the S.M.M. gallery of sketches and movies!

Here you are able to watch, and hopefully enjoy pictures and movie clips from our adventures.

Since we often lack visual records from the past, the least we can do is not making the same mistake.

Remember however that what you see are personal interpretations of what we believe the life of North American frontiers people might have looked like.

New knowledge constantly changes our view of the past. So please ask for further information rather than copying something straight from a sketch found here. We make mistakes and don't want anyone else repeating them. -S.M.M.

A great clip from Amercian Mounatin Men's national rendezvous held near Priest Lake (ID) in 2010. Buffalo meat cooking the fire while Fiddlin' Red entertains a bunch of mountain trappers. Half Stack, Charlie and Char gives in to the enchanting musik and starts dancing.

These two clips are borrowed from Teton Todd's Mountain Adventures. Visit for more interesting clips on recreating the Rocky Mountain trapper.
