Fort Uncompahgre in Delta is a re-creation of the original fur trading post established by Antoine Robidoux in 1826. The costumed interpreters will give an interactive tour of life during the Mountain Man era. Our next stop will be the Museum of the Mountain West in Montrose for a guided tour of settlement era town buildings that tell the story of early western Colorado from 1840 to 1940. After lunch in Montrose, we will visit the Ute Museum and view one of the best collections of Ute artifacts in the United States.
