Crawdad Feast 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
Loading the lively mudbugs into the pot

In addition to crawfish we had lots of grilled veggies
gorgeous summer fruit
and a killer fruit crisp
The American River flows right by the picnic site
As is our tradition, we return one crawfish to the river.
