Colorado’s Highest Webinar

December 2, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Have you ever wondered how the 58 fourteeners you have climbed got their names? Author Jeri Norgren has some pretty interesting answers in their new book.  Betty Ford Alpine Gardens invites you to an intimate evening with Jeri and Colorado photographer John Fielder on Wednesday, December 2, from 6 to 7 PM. Jeri will talk about the first climbers of these mountains and John will share not only his images, but oil paintings by Robert Wogrin and sketches made by the artists of the Hayden Survey.

John Fielder is a nationally renowned photographer, publisher, teacher, and environmentalist. He hikes and skis hundreds of miles in Colorado each year – and drives thousands – in order to record on film its most sublime natural places. Jeri Norgren is a fifth generation Colorado native. Having spent most of her life exploring the mountains and all the wonders they hold, she began her research as a member of the Denver Fortnightly Club, founded in1881.

If John’s presentation inspires you to learn more, you can purchase his new book, Colorado’s Highest: The History of Naming the 14,000-Foot Peaks at Alpine Treasures, the Gardens’ gift shop in Vail, the Education Center, and John Fielder’s website, johnfielder.com. It’s the perfect gift for all the people you know yearning to get outdoors through the winter!
