Vail 2013 - The Beaver Creek Rodeo

The first night we were in Vail, after everyone was checked in to their respective hotels, S, LM and I went over to Avon to check out the Beaver Creek Rodeo. We went to this rodeo last year, when it was VERY COLD and VERY WET. This year, it was very sunny and bordering on hot. All in all, for a rodeo, this year's weather was better. Here are some photos:

And this year's clown was WAY better than last year's clown.

A good night at the rodeo.

We watched a bit of the mutton bustin', but then we left before the steers, because we had a tired boy and it was a bit warm out there. Luckily, after one more day of warmer temps, it cooled off and was really nice for the rest of our stay. 

See you soon.
