Metates??

*****

You tell me.

*****

Out of nowhere there they were.

Not one or a couple but five, lined up and spaced in what would make ergonomic sense.

*****

After I got over feeling both dumbfounded and awed I took a step back and sized up the area.

On a rise in the high country off of the gap in the Peloncillos that dropped down abruptly with views south to Mexico and west to the Chircahuas.

Excellent sightlines

*****

I tend to be a live wire when it comes to energy in the environment; this spot had it. Between the metates from the past and a pickup truck cowboy campfire from the present, this spot was long attractive to travelers and wanderers.

Harsh desert light, full on sun.

Open and welcoming peoples on the ground: Thank You.

Bull riding sequences.

Luck of the draw determines the animal you ride.

*****

Rodeo clowns are no longer.

They are more aptly referred to as cowboy life support.

Be impressed.

*****

Seniors: Old and older guys still going hard.

Everyone walked away and lived to ride another day.

Be impressed.

The final cowboy, Snuffy by name, shows it done well.

Be impressed.
