Here are some photos and video from the fun I had at Calgary Stampede this year.

One of my colleagues, Danny N, came to visit from Indiana. Here he is at the rodeo. It was smoking hot that day,
so we were pretty happy to have some shade later in the day.

Danny got introduced to poutine on this trip. He also bought himself this sexy cowboy hat, and boots you can't see here.

This chopper was flying around the Stampede grounds. There was also a drone hanging out at the rodeo, but I think that
was providing video coverage.

Yummy Stampede food - smoked turkey legs and bacon-wrapped anything!

I took Danny outdoor rock climbing one evening in Calgary. He had been before but not for awhile. Here he is at
Wasootch trying out his rental shoes from MEC.

The cool thing about this photo is that Danny can be anywhere from 6 feet off the ground (which he is) to 5000 feet off!

The area at Wasootch is great since it's so close to the highway you can bring in a lawn chair.

And hanging out after working out a tough sequence on a 5.9.

A well-deserved beer, elk burger, and poutine at the Grizzly Paw in Canmore, AB.

The lilies that my mom gave us actually produced a gorgeous tiger lily in our front yard. It was later destroyed by
the hail and wind, but at least I know it looked this nice. Thanks Mom!

It was a little smoky still for the Sunset Stampede breakfast. Here's our neighbour Nic and her daughter Emilia
all ready for the rodeo. I love the look on Emilia's face.

Here's Henry playing with my bike in the basement. He apparently likes all pedals, not just Look Keo.

After the rains started, we migrated under the deck for some cover. Then the margaritas came out!

Here's Henry at the Bowness Park in Calgary, loving his little swing ride.
