Last week, Captain Cavedweller and I attended the Pendleton Round-Up.
Despite the insanely warm temperatures and the fact one of us got a sunburn, we had such a good time.
We also had great seats, close to the bucking chutes where I was able to take some photos.
I also took a bunch of photos of the steer wrestlers – but that’s for a future project you’ll just have to stay tuned to learn more about!
No rodeo is complete without a little bull riding.
If you love great rodeo action, the Pendleton Round-Up is well worth your time. Beginning in 1910, the event draws thousands of attendees every year and offers everything from top-name country music concerts, parades, and a Wild West show to the world-famous Rodeo.
I’m so glad we had the opportunity to attend this year because not just for my book research project (which happens to include the Round-Up) but also because it was just a lot of fun.
You can research just about anything online these days, but sometimes, nothing beats getting out and having a first-hand experience. You never know what creative juices will start flowing when you do.
