Crawdad Feast 2004

Crawfish 2004 

In June of 2004, a bunch of WELL folks, family and friends gathered just northeast of Sacramento at a shaded picnic spot alongside the banks of the American River. Everybody brought food and beverages to share at the potluck event, but our main focus was crawfish.

We cooked up fifty pounds of crawdads

In addition to crawfish we had lots of grilled veggies

and a killer fruit crisp

As is our tradition, we return one crawfish to the river.
