    Colorado's San Juan Mountains

    Colorado's San Juan Mountains

    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.

Including well-researched and illuminating narratives, Images of the San Juans--Revised, is the true life story of an awe-inspiring area and its inhabitants and an ever-enduring pioneer spirit. P. David Smith has also added lengthy captions explaining and pointing out the particulars of each photograph.

  4. The San Juan Triangle of Colorado Mountains of Minerals

    The San Juan Triangle of Colorado Mountains of Minerals

    The San Juan Triangle of Colorado

    Mountains of Minerals

    The spectacular landscapes of the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado are graphic evidence of the violent geology that concentrated a wealth of minerals in the triangle loosely defined by the picturesque mining towns of Telluride, Silverton and Ouray. An ancient hunting ground of indigenous peoples, these rugged high peaks concealed gold and silver discovered by westerners only in the last 150 years. These discoveries spurred mining booms and engineering feats as man worked to penetrate the ore- and crystal-laden cliffs and peaks. Modern visitors to the San Juans still collect minerals in the many prospects and trek the highways and byways that were first carved into the mountains by the pioneers. The mining history and stunning scenery of the San Juans is impossible to ignore, as are the Mountains of Minerals that make them so.
