Frontier Days Rodeo
July 4th was a big day for pictures (parade, barbecue, rodeo), and I was not sure where to begin. Getting down to basics, the Willits Frontier Days Rodeo claims it's the oldest continuously operating rodeo in the state, with this being its 82nd year. It's only since living in Willits that I've begun to appreciate the events, with my favorite being bullriding. That is to say, I watch it, I don't do it. This rider was going for the full 8 seconds.
There will be a lot more of this day's pictures in the next few posts, with liberal use of my Overflow blog, but tonight, I'm beat.
