From the Back Cover:

The Colorado Rockies are about supreme elevation, the highest of the high peaks in the Rocky Mountain Range. Distinctly ragged and rocky in appearance, with sheer angular slopes capped by steep crests with sharp edges, the Colorado Rockies include the highest summit in the Range-Mount Elbert-as well as fifty-three "fourteeners," peaks that exceed 14,000 feet.
High Country is a traveler's complete guide to exploring and understanding the Colorado Rockies. Focusing on national parks, wilderness areas, skyways and byways, peaks, national monuments, and the Continental Divide, author Susan M. Neider provides all of the vital information needed to plan a tour of this visually stunning area. An award-winning photographer, Neider identifies the exact
locations where particular photographs were taken and offers tips on how to capture your own beautiful photographs, as well as photo ratings indicating the relative ease with which an advanced amateur can come away with a variety of striking and satisfying images. Commentary on the geographic features and highlights of each area helps readers to fully appreciate the awesome, panoramic views.

About the Author:

Susan M. Neider's career in writing and photography came naturally to her--her father was the prominent Mark Twain scholar and Antarctic explorer and photographer Charles Neider. She traces her fascination with the Colorado high country to a childhood summer spent in the southwestern Colorado town of Durango.
