Sometimes we may be a bit hard to get in touch with and we apologize. My mom and I both have foster children and sometimes their needs are great. I do infants mostly and my mom has a teenager :) It is challenging and demanding, but rewarding and they are worth it!!!!

Cowboy Boots Explained

Cowboy boot
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Cowboy boots)
Jump to: navigation, search

Ad for Tony Lama featuring custom boots made for President Harry S. Truman.Cowboy boots refer to a specific style of riding boot, historically worn by cowboys. They have a high heel, rounded to pointed toe, high shaft, and, traditionally, no lacing. Cowboy boots are normally made from cowhide leather but are also sometimes made from "exotic" skins such as alligator, snake, ostrich, lizard, eel, elephant, sting ray, elk, buffalo, and the like.

There are two basic styles of cowboy boots, western (or classic), and roper. The western style is distinguished by a tall boot shaft, going to at least mid-calf, with an angled "cowboy" heel, usually over one inch high. A slightly lower, still angled, "walking" heel is also common. Although western boots can be customized with a wide variety of toe shapes, the classic design is a narrowed, usually pointed, toe.

A newer design, the "roper" style, has a short boot shaft that stops above the ankle but before the middle of the calf, with a very low and squared-off "roper" heel, shaped to the sole of the boot, usually less than one inch high. Roper boots are usually made with rounded toes, but, correlating with style changes in streetwear, styles with a squared toe are seen. The roper style is also manufactured in a lace-up design which often fits better around the ankle and is less likely to slip off, but these two features also create safety issues for riding.

Sabino Canyon 7 Falls Trail

Don't let the barren space and brown tones of the desert trick you into thinking you can't find beauty in the desert. For years, well, about 35 years, I have visited Sabino Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains. While there is a vendor who runs a tram through the Canyon, there are many people who hike in and out. Some of the tram drivers offer a little history of the area, the geology and the wildlife. One of my favorite hikes is 7 Falls.

Seven Falls
Santa Catalina Mountains

Total Length 7.8 miles
Highest Elevation: 3250 feet
Lowest Elevation: 2600 feet
Elevation Change: 650 feet
Difficulty Rating: C

Best Seasons: Spring Summer Fall Winter (I don't agree with summer)
Hiking Time: 3 hours
Dogs: Dogs not allowed

This is a very easy and popular hike to the incredible Seven Falls. Everyone who lives in Tucson should make the trip at least once. Even though this hike is in the hot lower elevations, I list it as a summer hike because you can cool off in the pools at Seven Falls, and get your clothes wet so they keep you cool on the hike back.
