If you haven’t been to a Montana Rodeo, I don’t think there could be one that’s more down-home than the American Legion Rodeo held in Augusta Montana. This is one wild Rodeo, and from what I’ve been told, it’s actually calmed down a bit from what it used to be. Driving down main street is tricky, especially navigating your way through enthusiastic folks drinking,eating and having way too good a time.

I was doing some photography this weekend up on the Rocky Mountain Front and decided to head over to Augusta to photograph some of the Rodeo. Having been my first time there I was amazed at how packed Augusta was. Normally this small Montana town is pretty laid back and quiet along main street, but during the Rodeo it’s quite a different story. Lets just say that the folks that show up for this Rodeo, expect to have some serious Montana fun.
