The cover photo was taken in October 2006 by John R. (Rob) Pierce from the south rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison (within the National Park), using a Nikon D70. He captured the shot just after the clouds lifted and the sunlight briefly appeared, during an otherwise cold and rainy/snowy day. Pierce is a partner at Dufford, Waldeck, Milburn & Krohn, LLP in Grand Junction, specializing in water law.
