“When I was a kid our family would drive up I-70 on our way to go skiing. Every time we approached Genesee we would look for what we called the “Space Ship” house. It’s a mysterious iconic house to anyone who grew up in Colorado. My Grandpa must have driven by it hundreds of times while making A-frame cabins all over the Rocky Mountains. To be able to photograph his trees in such an important home was a dream come true”
