Just when you thought Oregon was all lumberjacks and Portland hipsters, a bunch of cowboys show up and change your silly preconceived notions. The St. Paul Rodeo is one of the nation’s elite competitions, and this year’s edition will dole out $500,000 in prize money to cowboys in various competitions. The event also includes a tack room saloon and BBQ cook-off for those not inclined to make it a full eight seconds on a one-ton bull.
