Brigid Reedy 6, of Helena Montana sits at the Bar at the Western Folklife Center waiting for her sasparilla soda. // The Western Folklife Center which puts on the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is located in a building which was a hotel with an infamous bar. The bar has been restored to its Old West splendor and while adults drink alcohol, the children can order sasparilla (sp?) sodas. /// Participants in this year's gathering had the option to sign up for a tour of some of the area's local ranches, including a dutch oven lunch at Ruby Dome Ranch.
