The exhibit provides an opportunity for people to share their stories about the Las Conchas fire and other wildfires, listen to stories told by others and watch a slideshow that describes the community’s response to wildfires.

  • Thank You 06-12-12

    On behalf of the cowpokes who had a knee-slapping-good time at Cowboy Night, May 4, the LA Stable Owners Association wishes to thank the wranglers responsible.  
    First up, thanks to Cyndi Wells (Pet Pangaea) and Georgia Strickfaden (Buffalo Tours) for bountiful donations. The home range at the Posse Lodge provided a perfect setting.  At the chow line, Steve Wallin’s chuck wagon and succulent smoked beef made this an up-town rodeo.  
    Beyond the campfire, Kenny’s North Carolina BBQ cooked up some great beans and vittles. In the back 40, Ron Lucero deftly taught young dudes to rope, which was the high score of the evening.
