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.

Movie clips from adventures abroad

• Robert Campbell - Mountain Man (1804-1879)


BBC documentary from 2018 featuring a bunch of our brothers and friends from the American Mountain Men. There's even a few seconds of Scandinavian fame that was filmed in Pinedale in July 2017.

BBC describes the documentary as "...the epic rags-to-riches adventure story of a penniless Tyrone teenager who left Ulster in 1822 and ultimately became one of the wealthiest men in America. Robert Campbell was one of the first Ulster-Scots pioneers to open up the American west."

• Jens & Co Arrives At Camp


This clip was recorded at the 2017 American Mountain Men National Rendezvous held at Spring Creek, Idaho. It was an amazing feeling to see our Scandinavian brother arrive like a real mountaineer in a secluded valley in the Rocky Mountains.

• Mountain Man Socks (Fotlappar)


This clip was made at the Museum of the Mountain Men in Pinedale during a SMM visit in 2010. Charlie and Char shares their plausible answear to what Osbourne Russell ment by "...his hose are pieces of Blanket lapped round his feet... ".

• Feast and Frolic


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.
