HEAT WAVE

We were experiencing some warm weather this week, and it finally cooled off.  When I went to lunch today it really cooled off, suddenly to 61 degrees.  We typically don’t get hail in Estes Park, but today was the exception.

I really couldn’t believe that we actually had some 1/2 inch hail that was solid.  Typically we get something in the 1/4 inch range that is nothing more than slush.  This was actual hard frozen hail – very unusual for Estes Park.

Tonight ended the 84th annual Rooftop Rodeo.  I’ve attached a couple of pictures for you.  This year the Bulls won.  There weren’t very many cowboys that were able to make the 8 second ride.

THIS COWBOY IS IN THE MONEY IN THE BULL DOGGING

This cowboy was thinking that he should have packed a parachute for this bareback ride.

If you missed the Rodeo, you missed a good one.  See you next year.

Tonight is the last night for the rooftop rodeo!  I’ll have more on this later with more pictures, but don’t forget to go tonight.  The weather will be great, and this is the first Rooftop Rodeo with the new grandstands.

GOOD RIDE NO SCORE

Cowboys have to mark their ride out of the shoot by having their spurs above the horses shoulders when they leave the gate.  The cowboy had a terrific ride, but received no score because he failed to mark the horse out of the shoot.

Speedy Gonzales

I saw this little guy in front of our house earlier this week when I went out on the deck.  He doesn’t stand still.  He ran up and down the mountain in front of our house about fifteen times.

I’ll have a lot more on this little guy in “Monday Morning Coffee”

July Fresh Snow

Looking at Long’s Peak this morning it is very evident that there is a lot of fresh snow up there. Cool weather and rain in Estes Park for the Rodeo (always happens) translated to some fresh snow on Long’s Peak last night.

I’ll bet you are glad that you didn’t decide that today was the day you were going to climb Longs Peak.  I’m sure it’s a little chilly up there this morning.

Have a great day –
