The rodeo started at sun set after the heat of the day was over. My best photos were of the opening ceremony. During the bucking broncos and bull riding competition the sun had gone down and my photos are a little blurred. In spite of bad pictures I had a good time watching the rodeo. If you are in Bolivar when they are having the rodeo I suggest that you go.
Fantastic Caverns is on highway 13 between Bolivar and Springfield. I mentioned it on my Springfield page so I'll just add this one photo here.
