The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Nevada: A cowboy gathering in Elko? It could be verse

In Elko poets gather

to dodge Nevada chill

To read, hold forth and blather

As versifiers will.

This January hoedown

joins horsemen and their kin

to artists who aren’t highbrow.

One year I will sneak in.

In other words, the Western Folklife Center in Elko, Nev., is staging its 30th Cowboy Poetry Gathering Jan. 27-Feb. 1, 2014. The programming honors horsemen Bill and Tom Dorrance.
