Humboldt County’s most famous fire-spewing octopus is at it again, having traveled into the Rockies to flame it up at Colorado’s Telluride Fire Festival.

El Pulpo Mecanico, the 26-foot-tall brainchild of local artist Duane Flatmo is one of the festival’s headliners and, with the event dubbings itself a “community celebration of excellence in interactive fire arts,” it seems a perfect fit.

To read El Pulpo’s full story, including how much work it takes to ship that thing hundreds of mile for an event, see the Journal’s prior story here. For more on the festival, check its website here.

And, if you’re in the camp that believes the only good octopus is the edible kind, give Jennifer Fumiko Cahill’s recipe a try.
