One of the many members of the Navajo County Sheriff’s Posse who participated in the Hashknife Pony Express, which re-enacts the delivery of mail by horseback, riding from Holbrook to Scottsdale. They did not look tired at all.

It was cowboys, cowgirls, clowns, dogs, young republicans, vegan protesters, baton twirlers, manure shoverles, little and big ropers, tricycles, marching bands and more at the annual Parada del Sol parade in Scottsdale. It has a hoor and a half, pure fun human spectacle.

Memorable quote- a young lady at the front holding tha main banner. Us: “Are your arms tired from waving?” “Her: “No, my cheeks ache from smiling”. Parade job hazards.
