Morning Run

A beautiful Moab morning!


Rodeo!

The highlight of last weekend was the rodeo- my Friday Find for the week.  I hadn’t been to a rodeo since childhood and had forgotten what fun it could be.

There were bucking broncos. . .

And, of course,  I love taking the detail shots.

But most of all, I loved watching Henry enjoying himself!

Yellowstone Epic Horse Drive

Last weekend as part of the Memorial Day festivities, a large group of horses were run through the town of Gardiner (bordering Yellowstone) and up to new pastures in Jardine (in the hills). We joined the throng lining the streets waiting for the Yellowstone Epic Horse Drive. It was all over in a flash, and my photos are mostly of the, um, back ends of the horses and clouds of dust. However, the 2 or 3 minutes that it lasted were pretty thrilling. The next day was the rodeo- probably the most fun event I’ve ever photographed. Look for those photos soon!
