Balloon lighting without balloons


Traditionally every night of the festival they conduct a balloon lighting, where they inflate the balloons and light them up with their burners. This year the winds were too strong to put out the balloons, but the operators decided to provide a light show anyway.

Colorado Balloon Festival


This is the last of the annual Colorado Balloon Festivals. Every Labor day the Balloon Festival was held at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs. Due to persistent high winds this year's festival was pretty much a bust. But I was still able to get some interesting photos. More to come through the week.

Discarded pump near the Waldorf Mine site, Colorado 

This pump collected waste water from the Waldorf mine shaft and pumped it uphill to the Santiago Mine, where it was used for processing the pulverized rock.
