The cover photo was taken by Max E. Carlson on September 22, 2008 at McCullough Gulch, which is approximately twelve miles south of Breckenridge. Carlson used a Pentax K20 digital camera with a 24mm lens, ISO 140, f/8.0. The face in the cloud is what initially caught Carlson’s attention; it disappeared seconds after the shot. Carlson retired as a Sedgwick County judge last February after thirty-three-and-a-half years. He is the owner of Vandemoer & Carlson P.C. in Julesburg.
