This Is Utah

Modern Day Mountain Man

Clip: Season 3 Episode 5 | 7m | Video has closed captioning.

Cache Valley resident Carson Pate lives every day like it’s the 1800s. As a modern day mountain man, Carson’s lifestyle is akin to that of the trappers & mountaineers of the American West in the early 1800s. It’s not easy — Carson crafts his own leather clothing & smiths his own tools — but getting away from the conveniences of modern society is exactly what draws Carson to the mountain man life.
