Carbondale’s Wild West Rodeo, that is. I’m basically a one-rodeo guy. I get all the excitement I need at our weekly Thursday evening summer line-up of barrel racing, calf roping, bull and bronc riding, mutton busting and other events. And while I enjoy capturing the high-speed action, I take just as much pleasure grabbing candids of competitors and audience members.
This page features Carbondale rodeos past—a selection of favorites from the past six years. For this year’s rodeo, visit the 2017 Rodeo page.
