Laura Goes to the Rodeo

Admittedly, no birding was done at the rodeo.

It was a fantastic show...the 75th Annual St Paul Rodeo in St Paul, Oregon. Very patriotic, very professional, and a clean comedy banter provided by the announcer and rodeo clown. Just a great time on the 4th of July!

Here are some images of bucking, roping, barrel racing, and, of course, the audience.

Very exotic indeed, And what a big crowd! Was it a particularly big event, or was a "normal" turnout for such an event?

Anders - nothing quite like this in Sweden? Yes, it was a big event but not as big as others around the country like the Pendleton Round Up or the Calgary Stampede. The turnout was pretty big - around 8000 people in the stands there. More popular that day with the 75th Anniversary combined with our Independence Day celebration.
