How the Character of Cowgirls and Cowboys are Formed – VIDEO

The County Fair in the American West is a formative place for the socialization of cowgirls and cowboys. In Oregon, The 2014 Crook County Fair in Prineville, Oregon is the place to observe the array of festivities.

One of these activities is called Mutton Bustin – where 4-7 year olds ride their first buckin’ bronco – a sheep.

Belknap Hot Springs

Belknap Hot Springs

The Belkap Hot Springs – an enchanting area. A great base camp for several days of outdoor adventures. Make sure you travel east (up slope) on the highway and visit Sahalie Falls. Also, head up highway 242 (McKenzie Pass Scenic Highway – highway entrance is one mile west (down slope) of the entrance to Belkap) and stop at Proxy Falls – a short .75 mile hike (one way).

The Director Collage

The Director by David Ignatius

It’s rare to read a story – with practical, present and future implications – as powerful and insightful as The Director. David Ignatius is the master of spy thrillers…PERIOD!


 

With an incomparable window into the people, practices, challenges, history and chaos that inhabits the web of U.S. intelligence institutions – Ignatius delivers a “can’t put this damn thing down” – spellbinding – literary masterpiece! Ignatius also possesses a bonafide concern for the future of this ever-sprawling enterprise.

This is my first David Ignatius novel. I’ll be looking for ALL his previous novels. He’s turned this reader into an Ignatius carnivore.
