Notes Here, the alpenglow crowning the jagged peaks in distant background signals not only the end of a day working the high country, but also the end of an era as the free trapper-garbed in a capote, high-topped moccasins, and a fur cap and armed with a flintlock and powder horn-will soon be replaced by company men working for the Hudson's Bay or American Fur companies, whose own heyday will also be short-lived.
