This town is just full of cowboys, rusty stuff, and nice people! Who could ask for more? The WINs are staying here for 2 weeks while we see Bryce and the surrounding area.
First, I went to the Cowboy Store, just to see the selection and check prices. But NO COWBOYS!!!
So then I moved on to the Cowboy Collectibles store, where I found the guy in the first picture sitting outside-
Plus a lot more inside!
They also had a lot of wagon wheels, another favorite of mine.
On Memorial Day weekend, they had the first annual Panguitch Western Roundup that included a Little Britches Rodeo. In this part, the horse had to go backwards through the barrels, trying not to knock them over.
Then there was a bank robbery, where the robbers escaped on ATVs.
But they were soon caught and put in a jail that doesn't look too secure.
The second weekend of June is their annual Quilt Walk Festival. This statue in town commemorates the history of that event. In the winter of 1864, a group of pioneers attempted to cross the mountains to save their families from starvation. The snow was too deep to walk on, but after kneeling on a quilt to pray, they discovered that they could walk on the quilts.
All over town are quilts advertising the upcoming festival, and no one steals them!
If you want to visit here, you can stay in this motel that even has color TV!
Down the road a bit, next to the Sevier River, I spotted an old rusty car, but was unable to get closer because of a barbed-wire fence.
But Phil is an expert at climbing barbed-wire fences, and showed me how. Just proves I'm not too old to learn new tricks.
