Cover photo: Compare this photo of Chris Baldo standing on the Lidgerwood Tower Skidder in the early morning light to the back page photo taken two days later.
Back cover photo: The heavily logged Juan Creek drainage in 1978, where Matthews and Waibel worked in the winters of 1974 and 1975. Road construction up the bottom of the creek was difficult, so the canyon was logged with a long-span system from the mid-slope road.
