Extreme Autumn: Fall in Colorado (Paperback)
Extreme Autumn: Fall in Colorado is an energetic rendition of what is otherwise a serene season. Forget gentle ponds with floating leaves. Toss the countryside red barn and maple tree out the door. And don't even think about that orange maple tree gracing a burial preplanning pamphlet. This is autumn Colorado Rockies style: high altitude, extreme, dangerous, and thought-provoking. Focusing on areas above 8,000 feet, the book delivers autumn from a plethora of angles: steep mountainsides, high-altitude lake shores, under full moon, river beds, in the snow, and best of all: from above with an airplane. There is nothing ordinary about fall here - it is filled with contrast at every turn - gentle and harsh, warm and cold, summery and in the snow. Some aspen stands nurse forest wildlife, other trees are a stubborn symbol of defiance growing on top of a rock glacier. Containing over 80 images, the book is an excellent way to enjoy all that autumn in Colorado has to offer without risking your life.
About the Author
Garrett Fisher is the author of Extreme Autumn: Fall in Colorado and The Human Theory of Everything. He is also the Executive Director of the Institute for Economic Innovation. He is a visionary at heart - examining existing conventions from limitless angles and calling entrenched thinking into question: in economics, through literature, and via the arts. "Seeing things as others do not," he has enjoyed a career in management consulting, financial turnarounds, and Chief Financial Officer roles at many firms. He presently is involved in a number of interesting book projects as well as a host of projects where he plans to further shake up current conventions regarding startups and human resource management. If Mr. Fisher is not found working as a mad scientist on his many projects, you can find him flying his antique airplane, skiing, or hiding above the timberline somewhere in the Rockies. Aside from his published book, he has contributed to Wired and has his photography published in a variety of world-wide media outlets.
