Format: Paperback
As with most 2nd editions the authors have enhanced their publication. Route descriptions are more concise and easier to follow. Plus, they have added a multitude of new photos which help you navigate your way to the Colorado summit. The addition of Broomfield County was a nice addition since it has just become a county.
The 1st edition was a landmark production and the 2nd edition is just that much better. A must purchase for anyone who is serious about hiking/climbing to the highest point of each Colorado county.

Our family farm is featured in this book and one of the last pictures of my father, so that is why I purchased it. But there are many other interesting sites covered as well, and seemed to be very well done.

Never had a guide book as boring as this one. The selection of summits is by the highest point in any county in Colorado, which includes cow pastures, and a "suburban street in residential southwest Denver - a short walk from side street parking requiring 5 feet elevation gain". For any other peaks, consult any of the other guidebooks.
