Ouray Oktoberfest Fireworks

Oktoberfest, Ouray, Colorado, fireworks

Happy 4th of July, I mean, Oktoberfest! Just like last year, Ouray had leftover fireworks since the 4th of July show was cancelled due to fire danger, so they shot them off for the Oktoberfest party instead.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there is no place like Ouray to watch (or listen to) fireworks! The booming echoes that reverberate around the mountain walls are incomparable.

Compare this photo with my shot of the fireworks last year, taken from the same perspective but much, much higher up!
