TYPES OF LODGES USED BY THE MOUNTAIN MEN

Trapper's cabin. - This was a small, one-room log cabin, usually having a sod roof.
Tipi - The mountain man did adopt the skin lodge of the Indian. These were often old tipi's the Indian no longer wanted. Usually obtained through trading with the Indian.
Lean-to - If caught in bad weather, the mountain man would often construct a lean-to where he was. Naturally, these were made from whatever could be found in the area.
Trade fort - Mountain men were sometimes known to winter in a trade fort. More often than not they were at odds with the factor and not really welcome.
Buffalo robes green earth, and open sky - This was the favorite lodge of the mountain man, the one he spent most of his life in.



See you down the trail
