my little cowgirl

this is a post of links.

well, seeing as how judah already told y'all about our camping trip, i thought i might as well tell you about the bar d.

we met up with a family who befriended my parents a few years ago in zion national park. the haverlys live in mancos, colorado. we travelled with them through bryce canyon national park and a few (really sad) native american reservations, back to their home in mancos. mancos is not far from durango, colorado. and in durango you can find . . . the bar d wranglers.

the wranglers are a dying breed. they harken back to the days of roy rogers and the sons of the pioneers. the wranglers are a singing group and they put on a great show! we laughed, we cried . . . well, not so much the crying.
anyhow, there is this little faux western village selling all sorts of useless trinkets including but not limited to, buckskin caps, posable toy horses, cowboy-mantra wall hangings, cheesy rip-off Christian tee shirts and more. don't get me wrong, i had a great time.

the wranglers cook and serve dinner before performing. they are incredibly talented musicians. in fact, they were invited to play at the grand ole opry! i would recommend anyone passing through the southwest corner of colorado to stop in for some good eats and a great show!
