Colorado's Seasons of Gold by Rod Hanna
About ROD HANNA
Rod Hanna has been a professional photographer for over 40 years. Hanna moved to Steamboat Springs from Kansas City in 1975 after 12 years as a photojournalist and sports photography specialist. He then began a 25-year career as a marketing executive for the Steamboat Ski Resort---announcing his retirement in 2000. Continuing to be active as a photographer over the years---including 10 years as official photographer for the Denver Broncos, his interest turned to nature and fine art photography. During this time, he began to show his work in art galleries as time allowed from his business career. In November 2007 he published his first book of his photographs, “Seasons of Light.” His work can also be seen at www.rodhanna.com.
About CHARLIE MEYERS
Since his arrival in the state in 1966, Charlie Meyers had been smitten by Colorado’s vast beauty. His first impressions---as is almost always the case with wanderers fresh in from the flatlands---came from the grand drama of the mountains, those towering sentinels pulling him steadfastly upwards. With that came discovery of water and snow cascading downhill, launching a career writing about outdoor subjects such as fishing and skiing. A long marriage to The Denver Post served as a springboard to far-off lands, often on assignment for Ski Magazine and a variety of angling publications. Meyers was the Outdoors Writer at the Post until his untimely death from complications of cancer in January, 2010 and he will be deeply missed.
About TOM ROSS

A native of Wisconsin, he got his start in the business in 1977, visiting a different dairy farm each week and writing the “Farm Review” for the Chilton Times-Journal. In 2006, Ross was a member of a team of journalists that produced a six-part series on the future of the Yampa River. It won a national award for “explanatory reporting” from the Inland Press Association. The Associated Press recognized Ross in 2007 with awards for environmental and business writing.
Ross’s own photographs have been licensed for commercial uses in more than 20 countries. He frequently packs his notebook and camera on fly-fishing and Nordic skiing outings in the Yampa Valley. Ross also wrote the text for “Seasons of Light.”
