At the Rodeo

This week we are in Westcliffe, Colorado.  It is located in the valley below the Sangre de Cristo mountains, so it has great open plains and grazing land.  Westcliffe, and it’s sister city Silver Cliff, prospered in the 1800’s due to silver mines.  Now it is more of a small town, typical of Western cities.

As luck would have it, this weekend was the 70th Annual Rodeo Days.   Seemed like a good thing to see, and it was.  One thing for sure, you have to respect the athleticism (and pain tolerance) of the cowboys!
