Good for you Kartick.

Kartick Satyanarayan has devoted his life to protecting animals from harm. The organization that he co-founded, Wildlife SOS, has helped elephants, reptiles, leopards, monkeys and other creatures that have been mistreated. In many cases, the group also carries out the dangerous work of pursuing poachers. And while all that would be noteworthy alone, Satyanarayan is best known for his leadership in saving the dancing bears of India.

Good for you Kartick.

Do It Yourself: Homemade Store Furniture

Easter weekend afforded Justin some time to work on furniture for our shop. Here are some of the new handmade creations (still unfinished):

A happy Alisha and Justin (Furniture-yeah!):

Easter Run with the Pups

We are lucky to have an amazing backyard. Backing directly to the Forest Service land filled with huge, beautiful, sweet-smelling Pondersa Pines, we have access to miles and miles of trails, FS roads, canyons, and little swimming holes.

Most days Grey, Ruby, Luna and I go for a long (fun) run. Currently, we are training for a bi-duathlon (with archery) that we are trying to put together for this summer. We already have a few people willing to join us…

This past Easter, we had a blast running through Kelly Canyon:

After the run, I met up with Justin in town (he was making furniture at the shop) and we enjoyed all you can eat indian cuisine and all you can drink champagne at the Himilayan Grille (the best restaurant in Flagstaff).  :)

The Poehnelt’s Visit Flagstaff

Justin is fortunate to have his parents visit him, wherever he may be, every year. This year, roatripping all the way from Wisconsin, they came to see us in Flagstaff. 

We hiked around our back yard (atop Pumphouse Wash and Kelly Canyon):

Admiring the snow melt rushing through Pumphouse Wash:

Kathy and Terry were so generous, helpful, and patient. They even helped us install a new utility sink in the bathroom and paint the shop:

Here are some before and after shots:
