It´s official, Caitlyn Smith is this year´s round-up queen. She seemed in shock when asked how it felt to win the crown moments after being named Mother Lode Round-Up Queen 2003 last night at the Sonora Elks Lodge. She was surprised and very happy.
Mother Lode Round-Up activities continue to build momentum through the week leading to the big parade and two days of rodeo this weekend.
Check back later today to see more photos from last night´s event.
