Teams arrive Friday in preparation for today’s ninth annual Fiesta Days Cook-Off. Bob Cooper drives his mules, Kit and Kate, with Brittany Stone and Davin Montoya in the Montoya Ranch wagon at the intersection of U.S. Highway 550/160. Following is the Canyon Trails wagon driven by Rodney Carriker and David Fraley. Both wagons began at the Exxon gas station on Highway 160 west and rode through downtown Durango to the La Plata County Fairgrounds. The cook-off is sponsored by the La Plata-Archuleta Cattlemen’s Association.
