Sharing my adventures in the Colorado mountains in the summer, and beautiful Ft. Worth Texas in the winter.

It's Rodeo time in Houston. Come to our town anytime from mid-February to mid March for the world's largest rodeo. Cowboys and cowgirls come from all over the country to compete and show their livestock.An enormous about of money is raised each year, most of it going for educational scholarships, benefiting youth. In addition to bull riding, calf roping , chuck wagon races, chili cook-offs , etc. there is a lineup of famous musicians putting on concerts right in the middle of the rodeo arena. Upwards of a million people attend the rodeo and the various events associated with it. It seems like every guy in town is a cowboy this time of year, and I have a hard time telling the real from the fake!
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
