Photographer's Note

The first Calgary Stampede in 1912 drew over 100,000 people into the city and grossed over $120,000. Hotel owners and merchants could not have been happier.

Things have gotten bigger and bigger since then. When you think of a big place think of Canada and Alberta.

The hat may be big and the body small but it's all about attitude.

What I remember about the Calgary Stampede, like my time at Lac La Ronge, is that at this latitude in the summer, damn, it sure is light; almost to midnight!
