  1. Took tour in August through the Fairmont in Deadwood. We got plenty of pics with Orbs, but this was a pic taken of an empty staircase behind us as we had finished descending. Really surprised when going through our photos.

    The rooms walls were actually purple in color, but when picture was taken the walls were blue and if you look closely you can see a orb close by the mannequin. Taken last year on Mothers Day.
