Celebrating 100 Years of Colorado's National Parks & Monuments: Rivers, Ruins, and Mountains - photographs and commentary by John Fielder
2016 is the 100th anniversary of America’s National Park Service. Colorado's preeminent nature photographer has photographed the state's most sublime federal lands for over 40 years. In this original presentation, he guides us on foot and boat through its National Parks & Monuments. By raft you will negotiate thousand-foot deep canyons of the Colorado, Yampa, Green, Arkansas, and Gunnison Rivers. On foot you will step inside the cliff dwellings and castles of early Native Americans. And with backpack and tent, you will visit the most remote parts of the granddaddy of mountain parks, Rocky Mountain. Enjoy John's commentary about his life in the wilderness, the challenges and techniques of wilderness photography, and beautiful music behind the images. Included in the slide show are John's iconic repeat photos of W.H. Jackson's 19th-century Colorado images. Beautiful music complements many of the images.
Please plan to stay after the presentation for some light refreshments and to meet John Fielder. Celebrating 100 Years of Colorado’s National Parks and Monuments will be in sale and he will be on hand before and after the event to sign all of his popular Colorado coffee table and guide books. These make wonderful gifts, sure to thrill the nature lovers, photographers, and art fans on your holiday gift list! A percentage of the book sales help the Castle Pines Arts & Cultural Foundation continue our mission to bring quality arts and cultural activities to the Castle Pines area.
