Every year around mid-January, excitement stirs when I start to see the stock show parking signs on I-25.  I don’t know what it is about this annual event,  but I love it!    The National Western Stock show is a smorgasbord of “Americana”.  There is everything to be found at here, from  cowboy boots to funnel cakes. And of course there are all the adorable animals.   But for me it’s the people watching that I love the most, and this year I brought my camera.   So if you’re like Jesse, and have an allergy attack just nearing the stables, or  if you just can’t handle the skirt-chasing, Coors drinking cowboy culture, then  hopefully you can live vicariously through these images and take a trip down a genre of true Americana….
