Unlikely duo teams up for Glenwood pictoral

Ryan Graff

A veteran of the publishing world and a relative newbie teamed up to create a new book on Glenwood Springs, “Glenwood Springs Pictorial.”The book is the eighth for Jim Nelson, a valley resident since the 1970s, and the first for Erin Cady, a Denver native and recent Valley transplant through Colorado Mountain College. “It was fun, and we had a great time,” Nelson said. The two met through the Glenwood Caverns Adventure park, where Nelson is a volunteer and Cady is a tour guide. They started talking about photography in the shop, where Jim was stocking his books, Cady said.A year ago, the two decided to do a book together. “It’s weird to think that it came to term because we were working on it for a year,” Cady said.And though the two teamed up to produce a book, they came from fairly different backgrounds. Cady seemed bound to become a photographer. “My dad collected cameras and coffee table books,” she said. “He has over 350 (cameras).” Cady also studied photography at CMC, whereas Jim is “home-schooled.”Whatever their backgrounds, though, they have produced a nice book full of pictures familiar to anyone who lives in Glenwood Springs.
