The highlight for the day was no doubt the rodeo. We were fortunate enough to have the foresight (or perhaps dumb luck!) to have purchased seats under the shade in the grandstand. Even then, it was starting to heat up. I learnt a lot about rodeo and the various events today! Admittedly the starting point was virtually non-existent...the rodeo was fun, fast-paced and addictive to watch! I won't bore you with too many photos, but I've place some events which I thought were fascinating. There were also the more "standard" events which many are familiar with like bronc and bull riding.
We trudged back to the hotel absolutely exhausted. A little bit of sadness had also crept in, we had to face our flight back home tomorrow.
