Maggie Reed is the co-owner of High Country Carvings, a company based in San Luis Valley. She makes and sells carvings with her husband, Travis Reed. The company makes many carvings, mostly bears and benches.

 

 The husband–wife combo use their skills to make wood carvings that they sell all over the country.

The process is a very easy one; although it is only for pros. Travis uses chainsaws to carve out the initial shapes, and then uses a chisel and hammer to chip out the finer details. Then he hands it over to Maggie, who paints and stains the wood piece.

 

The Hawk Quest booth is also a popular booth at the Stock Show, due to the appearance of many live birds.

 

The organization is dedicated to helping hurt birds, although some of them stay with the company for their whole life, due to injuries that cannot be fixed.

 

The Western Stock Show is home to many other booths, which you can visit through January 26. All of these booths are open until then, so when you can, take some time to visit the National Western Stock Show!
