Cover Image: The destructive power of the April 1999 flood in Colorado's WIlliams Canon is evident in this view of the famous Narrows, taken a day afer the flood waters mostly receded.The road through the Narrows was completely washed out in the flood, probably never to be reopened to vehicular traffic. In this view, front to back, Mark Maslyn, Fred Luiszer and Richard Rhinehart stand on one of the culverts that reviously carried the Williams Canon stream underneath the road bed. The culverts were mostly removed in 2001. Photograph copyright by Carolyn Cronk.

Cover Image: Groaning Cave's Land of the Inverted Mushrooms is a unique chamber beyond the Conning Tower in Colorado's longest known cave. Reached only through several hours of caving, including either a rope drop or a squeeze through a tight passage, Mushrooms contains many calcite-pool-encrusted stalactites and draperies, indicative of a substantial pool in the chamber for a significan period of time. Today the room is dry and a treasured destination for cavers. Photograph copyright by Norman R. Pace.
