WEMINUCHE 225

The Weminuche Wilderness covers over 490,000 acres in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It is a roadless area along the continental divide of glaciated peaks and deep gorges. The Weminuche is the source of both the Rio Grande and San Juan rivers. The photographs in this exhibit were recorded on several week-long trips in the 1970s and 80s. Back then there was substantial snow, even in the middle of the summer. I used a twin-lens-reflex camera that produced 2.25" negatives, a rather heavy piece of backpacking equipment.
