The cover photo was taken by Evan Lipstein on Fremont Pass in Lake County, in August 2007, using a Canon A710 at ISO 200, f3.2, 1/80 sec., 60mm equivalent focal length. This is an Amanita Muscaria or Fly Agaric mushroom. It is beautiful and poisonous, but seldom fatal. It ­often grows with edible fungi. Lipstein is a solo practitioner in Lakewood, where he has practiced for thirty-five years. He is hoping that 2010 will provide another good mushroom ­season in the Colorado high country.
