Rodeo Days

Before spending a few weeks with champion roper K.C. Jones, pilot and professional photographer Jeff Berlin thought he''d been to a rodeo.

“This trip showed me what real rodeo is all about,” says Berlin, who flew Jones to rodeo events last summer in Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota.

Along the way, Berlin learned to throw a rope and tie-down a calf, dined on road-killed elk, and slept in a Freightliner semi pulling a four-horse trailer “bigger than many New York City apartments.”
