Cowboy cooks

Twila Bankson (left) and Julie Ochsner flank Dave Berens as they enjoy a moment away from the cowboy kitchen during the 2013 Oregon Trail Rodeo in Hastings. The women make home-cooked meals for volunteers and the cowboys and cowgirls competing at the rodeo. This year’s rodeo is Aug. 23-25 at the Adams County Fairgrounds.
