too much sun!!

the weather here has been outrageous - 80's, sunny, no bugs. i've had this great job the last 3 weeks working for a friend of mine at one of the biggest (and only pesticide free) greenhouses in town. it's 8 hrs a day of hard physical labor - everything from making dirt, transplanting trees, delivering huge flower baskets... the best part is that people actually say thank you for your work (something i really missed in grad school). but alas, think i'm starting a new job at the university this week, but still hiring bureacracy to be worked out so stay tuned.
got in a long road ride today - 52 miles from the u to the top of cleary summit and back. i'm trying to train for the sourdough triathlon in july - it's here in fairbanks but a long one, a half-ironman (1 mi swim, 56 mi bike, 13 mi run). so that's what i'm up to... puppy training and julie training... there's no time left for a new job!

kath - check out for the photo i think you're thinking of. (but he won a big award for this image so it's probably more expensive than others)
mro - what are you doing reading my blog? get on your own - where are pics of sunny vancouver?
dea and stac - i worked on my poptart attack today, best be ready for it next time we ride together... Posted by Picasa

i canoed ~ 20 miles of the chatanika on saturday with my friend kyle. great to paddle on the high spring water, and see a lot of terrain as it's just starting to green up. lots of new migrants have just arrived. caz's first class II @ 10 weeks old!

weekend in town

my assistant likes to run off with my tools... she's not much help. great weekend in town - running, biking, and building a small garden box. dea and ben's blog has better photos from the weekend - check it out. there's a perfect mother's day photo there for you mom - you can download it yourself and then i'll be on time for a change this year :). heading down to denali for a few days tomorrow just to help Kristen out with her project and get in some good birding... Posted by Picasa

Clearwater 2006

Every spring a group of friends gets together to float the clearwater - one of the first rivers to melt out, it's near delta junction. I think this is my 4th or 5th year doing it, and it was a huge group this year - 13 boats and 25 people!! Fun weekend, and we lucked out with the weather (not exactly balmy, but it was predicted to snow, and thankfully didn't!)
