Uprooted Magnolia

Cowboy Carnival

Posted in Local, Photography by leahyetter on July 26, 2011

We made a quick get-away to Cheyenne for Frontier Days on Saturday evening.

We didn’t get there in time for a rodeo but we did get to watch some fumbles on a mechanical bull.

Folks enjoyed sizzling on the Sizzler in the warm evening sunshine.

These carvings in driftwood caught my eye.
We spent most of our time out of the sun looking at the art and jewelry booths.

But once the sun went down, country singer Jason Aldean hit the stage to a sold out audience. Just in case you didn’t know, he’s from my hometown of Macon, Ga. 🙂

Our seats were really high up but since I bought them the day before, we didn’t complain about that. My only complaint was the sound. It was terrible. Throughout the opening acts and Aldean’s performance, there was screeching through the speakers and the bass was so heavy you couldn’t hear the singing. Ugh. Thank goodness for earplugs. Somebody needs to go back to sound school.

I hear that the park held about 50,000 people this weekend. I believe it and what’s funny is that the majority of the license plates in the parking lot were not from Wyoming. They were from Colorado, Texas, Arizona, the Dakotas, California and beyond.
Good times.

    Love the driftwod eagle. People are so clever and creative.

      Yeah, I thought those were pretty cool. I see driftwood all around here and can see the potential, but I can’t carve like that. I’ll leave it to the experts. 🙂

    how fun!
    a pity the sound was awful, maybe they didn´t bring their own equipment and the one that was provided was old or something?

      I’m sure he has his own equipment and then the venue had there’s as well. But the 2 didn’t mix well and whoever was running didn’t know how to handle it. Oh well, it was fun anyway!
