We started out our day at a buffet breakfast at the stop of what looks like the Space Needle. We were on a revolving pedestal 465 feet up. You will see me standing on the glass area over the street! We had a beautiful 360 degree view of the city.
Okay, so today was rodeo day and I hit an all time high in picture taking for one day - 826! But not to worry, lots of those were deleted as I went through them. The Stampede grounds are HUGE...They consists of an Arcade area with carnival games and really extreme rides, food venders with NOTHING that even REMOTELY resembles HEALTY eating, and we LOVED it
Here is a sampling of that great day! One thing that was unfortunate about the day was that one of the bull riders was stomped on by that 2 ton beast and was carried away on a stretcher. Word is that after surgery and two metal rods and several pins in his spine, he is able to walk! Can you just imagine the pain that young man was experiencing? Whoa! A strong breed of Cowboy that's for sure.
