Photographer Karin Prescott and author Jon Anton Vierling will talk about their book, “Peak One,” on Sunday as part of Fall for the Arts weekend. The informal talk will be at 4 p.m. in the Mount Royal Room of the County Commons in Frisco and is presented by the Summit County Arts Exhibit Committee.

Prescott and Vierling met in 2012, when she showed him a photo she took of a tattered American flag on the summit of Peak 1 near Frisco. Peak 1 held a special place in Vierling’s heart because of the many hikes he had done there with his father.

Vierling, a Dutch immigrant, grew up at the base of Peak 1 in Bill’s Ranch and appreciated the photographs Prescott had taken of the area.

“We shared an interest in nature, hiking and the fascinating relics surrounding Peak 1,” Prescott said. “Partnering on the ‘Peak One’ book seemed like a natural next step.”

Prescott grew up in Dillon and now lives near Alma. She has won numerous photographic awards, and some of her photos reflect her humanitarian efforts. A number of her photographs are on display in the County Commons second-floor lobby.

Join Prescott and Vierling on Sunday to hear more about their collaboration. The talk is free, and all ages are welcome. Copies of “Peak One” will be on sale at the talk.

The Summit County Arts Exhibit Committee, whose mission is to add significance to the quality of life enjoyed by Summit County residents and visitors by instilling an awareness and appreciation of the arts, is sponsoring the talk and exhibit.
