On Friday, as I was leaving the tiny town of Eureka, Nevada I saw a sign for the Eureka High School Rodeo: May 25, 26 & 27. Never one to pass up a rodeo, I pulled into the fairgrounds and got permission to park my little Teardrop among the dozens of behemoth horse trailer/ rv combos.
I love a good rodeo and small town rodeos are the best. At these kind of events, it’s easy to saunter right past the spectator stands and get into the action back behind the livestock chutes. For most of the day on Saturday, I hung out with the bull and bronc riders, the only woman in an adrenaline-charged crush of cowboys. Not once did anybody ask what I was doing back there, though I did give out a bunch of Blonde Coyote business cards to guys interested in photos (or interested in women who hang out behind bull chutes). All in all, it was a pretty awesome Memorial Day weekend!
