SALT LAKE CITY -- Rockets soared up to 25,000 feet above the Bonneville Salt Flats this weekend as participants from around the country gathered for HellFire.

The event was sponsored by the Utah Rocket Club and was free to the public. It began Thursday and continued until Sunday morning. Photojournalist Manuel Rodriguez takes us to the flats in the video above.
