2017 Cheyenne Frontier Days

The rodeos are non-stop action at world’s largest outdoor rodeo & western celebration, Cheyenne Frontier Days. It’s been four years since I’ve been and it was like a welcome home by the many familiar faces I saw. It was my ninth time photographing the “Daddy of Em’ All”.
