It was an amazingly bloggish crew-- us, MDMNM and Miss A., Mrs. Peculiar who also blogs as The Pumpkin King (Mr. P. is guiding in the Grand Canyon); and non- blogger saluki fan, artist, architect, and polymath Daniela Imre, another Magdalenian. Our core NM blog crew lacked only Labrat and Stingray.
Here we are all taking pix of each other-- photos by Daniela.

Me cutting a not very good specimen.
Non edulis 'shrooms.
We saw the odd local very black tassle- eared squirrels,a young melanistic redtail and a ferruginous hawk, and many pronghorn with babies, but only harvested enough for a rissot'. But with the festive case of wine brought by MDMNM, pounds of Trader Joe's cheese ditto, and Alaska salmon he caught and smoked himself, we had a royal feast and way too much fun.
