In this original presentation, John takes us on a visual storytelling journey on foot and by boat through Colorado’s national parks and monuments. By raft you will negotiate the 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 National Park. Enjoy John’s commentary about his life in the wilderness and the challenges and techniques of wilderness photography as you listen to beautiful music behind the images. Included in the slideshow are John’s iconic repeat photos of W.H. Jackson’s 19th-century Colorado images. John will be on hand before and after the event to sign all of his popular Colorado coffee table and guide books.
