The San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado are among the most spectacular mountains in the world. They contain seven wilderness areas, nine distinct ecosystems, and more land above 10,000 feet than any other mountain range in North America.
In Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, renowned photographer Grant Collier has captured the sublime beauty of these mountains. Grant has explored every stretch of the San Juans, photographing jagged peaks rising to dizzying heights, undulating meadows covered with wildflowers, and immense waterfalls plunging over rocky cliff faces.
This book also leads you back in time with a selection of photographs from the 1880s taken by Grant's great-great-grandfather, the pioneer photographer Joseph Collier. The combination of historic and modern photographs provides a compelling new perspective on Colorado’s most expansive mountain range.
"All in all, this is a fine assortment that helps us see our mountains in different ways, large and small, old and new." - Colorado Central Magazine
"Most of Collier's beautiful photographs are of the wilderness… The book would be an apt and easy-to-mail gift to send to people whom you want to tempt to visit." - Durango Herald
