Let'er Buck!

Last weekend was the world famous Pendleton Round Up and as an avid Round Up fan, I have an obligation to share this with my husband. It's okay, I think he liked it. Friday morning was the Westward Ho! Parade. It's really pretty neat. No motorized vehicles or rubber tires allowed. That means there are lots of wagons and horses. Of course there's the typical marching bnds and dance teams as well as political campaigners and universities. Here were a few of my favorites:
We also had a good time at the rodeo, but my pictures from the arena didn't turn out so good, although I did get a decent paparazzi shot of the calf roper, Fred Whitfield. The Round Up rodeo is always good and this year was no exception.
