I rejoined the bike adventure this weekend in Rock Springs, Wyoming, where I attended my first live rodeo. It was the National High School Finals Rodeo which had participants from USA, Canada, Mexico, and Australia and we were fortunate to be in town at this time. The majority of the audience were themselves also cowboys and cowgirls, sporting big metal belts, jeans, long-sleeve button-down shirts, boots, and of course cowboy hats. It was a totally new experience for me. I was amazed at the skill and
courage of these young students.
