mushrooms!

this weekend we went for a glorious camping trip up near telluride. we joined our friends gary, shannon, gavin, and ava.


(what do you think they are talking about, shannon?)





we didin't realize it when we planned the trip, but it was the annual mushroom festival in telluride this weekend. now, now, pipe down, not that kind of mushroom festival... to illustrate, let me just say that all of the following photos were taken during one rather short early morning bike ride. (yes, shannon and i were jumping off and on our bikes a lot.) the locals have chosen to celebrate the bounty that occurs this time of year surrounding their town.















(okay, apparently if you were to ingest this one, you might hallucinate for up to two days...)



there were handy displays to teach you how to identify all of the varieties, which ones were edible, etc. it was pretty cool.

i had the sweetest little audience when i played. (you can tell junebug is really enjoying it...)


















i've just snuck into hazel's room to kiss her goodnight, again, one more time before things will never be the same... wish me luck tomorrow; i'm a bit of a wreck...
