Colorado Springs, Colorado

Every Labor Day weekend the tranquil waters of Prospect Lake are turned into nature’s most whimsical looking glass, reflecting the kaleidoscopic of orbs that take to the sky during the Colorado Balloon Classic. First organized in 1977, the festival now welcomes more than 230,000 tourists who gather to watch the fanciful spheres take over the horizon. With Cheyenne Mountain serving as nature’s most opulent backdrop, perhaps the "fairest of them all" isn't a person after all.
