Photo detail

Tri-State Generation and Transmission's Craig Station was ranked the No. 1 carbon polluting power plant in Colorado and 55th out of nearly 6,000 electricity-generating facilities in the country, according to a report called “America’s Dirtiest Power Plants” released Tuesday by Environment Colorado. Yet power plant and government officials think that is an unfair assessment of Craig Station. This aerial photo of the power plant was taken in late June in a plane flown by pilot Andy Middlemiss.
