Last Round Up (124) More files... by Pete Oxford and Renee Bish
High in the paramo of the Ecuadorian Andes the spirit of the anciet cowboy culture is still very much alive. Pete and Renee chronicle the traditional two-week annual rodeo on the Yanahurco Hacienda in the paramo habitat of Ecuador.
Sleeping under the stars, sharing campfires and camaraderie with the cowboys and herding 2,500 head of cattle to the homestead in November of 2003 left an indelible mark on the photographers. In 2005 they released a 155-page coffee table book on the subject.
