Join the author on a journey photographing Colorados 58 peaks over 14,000 feet from a 1949 Piper PA-11 antique aircraft. Useful to hikers, mountain enthusiasts, and anyone who likes pretty pictures, the book is part photo journey, part art, as each image presents the overwhelming beauty of every one of these foreboding peaks. Organized by mountain range, the book contains detailed maps, an index of where to find each peak, and data on image orientation relative to the 14ers. Containing over 111 images, the author also shares his stories of adventure to create the book: flying by the seat of his pants with a map, no heat, and no radio.
