Back to the days of rodeo glory

    The rowdy cowboys and old-fashioned fun of the old West may seem a world away from the quiet libraries and scientific research of UCSD, but last weekend, a real live rodeo wasn’t far away.

    The 38th Annual Lakeside Rodeo drew dozens of participants and thousands of spectators to San Diego’s East County April 26-28. Events such as calf roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, bull riding and the bareback bronc pitted man — and woman — against beast, or called for a rider to place great trust in his or her horse.

    The action at a rodeo can be heart-stopping and the images unforgettable.
