about this item

“My journey is one of the coalescence of land and light. I have walked hundreds of miles across this state, and still I grapple with its enormity. The sky is big. The mountains and plains of Colorado host magnificent clouds. Intrinsic beauty and diversity is everywhere. More alpine plants exist in Colorado than in any other state. Rivers originating in Colorado flow into eighteen different states. In 1893, the scene from the top of Pikes Peak so stunned Katherine Lee Bates that she was inspired to write ‘America the Beautiful.’ Today, Pikes Peak is often referred to as ‘America’s Mountain.’”—Barbara Sparks

The final book in a photographic trilogy, Barbara Sparks turns an eye on the landscape of Colorado, the state she’s called home for nearly fifty years. With an introduction by Governor John Hickenlooper and geologist Peter Dea, this book is an elegantly conceived photographic poem.
