Surveying the Scene on La Grande Wheel at the Rodeo Carnival
Photos by Jeff Balke
La Grande Wheel -- a fancy name for the Ferris wheel -- is a nice break from the more psychotic rodeo rides. It's a chance to regroup, relax and meditate on the vast sea of cars nearby, the expanse of colorful rides below, and the Astrodome and the Med Center in the distance. We didn't bother to rate the barf or scream factor of La Grande Wheel -- both were negligible, unless you're afraid of heights. But the ride is not to be missed.
