Rope Tricks, Sioux County Fair

This young man was all too happy to show of his skill with a rope in the long, dusty light of a Saturday night at the Sioux County Fair. I wasn’t a city kid, so I’m not sure what they do to show off their prowess as they enter adulthood; but in western Nebraska, you do it with a rope and a horse.

And sometimes, just a rope.
