Colorado's Highest

Event Details

Have you ever wondered how Colorado’s most iconic mountains got their names? In their new book, Colorado’s Highest: The History of Naming the 14,000-Foot Peaks, Colorado author Jeri L. Norgren and photographer John Fielder use historical texts, maps, and sketches–and Fielder’s iconic photos–to take readers through the stories behind the names of all 58 14,000-foot peaks.
About the author: Jeri L. Norgren is a fifth generation Colorado native. Having spent most of her life exploring the mountains and all the wonders they hold, she became fascinated with the nomenclature of the highest peaks and began her journey. As a member of the Denver Fortnightly Club, she has authored numerous papers on various topics, including one that grew into this book. A lover of nature and everything it beholds, she lives on an historic farm in Englewood surrounded by dogs, coyotes and a pair of great horned owls.
Join us on Wednesday, March 24 at 6 pm for a free virtual presentation with Norgren, who will share her favorite naming stories and present stunning photographs from the book. The presentation will conclude with a Q&A portion.
