This ebook is a comprehensive and cumulative guide to the best locations in the San Juan Mountains. It is for hikers, photographers, backpackers or anyone interested in exploring Southwest Colorado. Included are many never-seen-before photos of unusual and rarely-visited locations. Iconic locations are also thoroughly discussed. This is the book to own if you want to maximize your summertime trips to the magical San Juans.

"Doing a casual reading (i.e. not looking for particular information) I found it a real page turner - one continuously expect to be surprised by what’s coming next. Shot after shot, the photography is awe-inspiring but very sensitive, never trying to artificially overwhelm the viewer, a real delight. One senses a conscious and humble approach to let the scenic beauty of the landscape be the star of the show. Your love of nature transpires in every single description. At first, I was going to write that you had produced 'a very fine book', but this would miss its true essence; I see this book as your gift to your readers. Very well done." - Laurent Martrés, author Photographing the Southwest
