Cowboy Splashes Hard!

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

The pilots thrill the crowds by doing quick "touch and go" maneuvers by splashing the surface of Prospect Lake and quickly taking off. A risky maneuver, if the pilot does not get the hot air balloon to rise again quickly after a splash, the flight is over, and the gondola sinks. Here, one of two "Cowboy Balloons" splashes hard on Prospect Lake in Memorial Park with the Front Range Mountains in the background.
