Photo Challenge: Symbol


This is the symbol for the Southern Arizona Rescue Association. The organization that I volunteer with.  It is more than just a symbol for and non-profit.  Its a symbol for self sacrificing individuals that come together to perform some daunting tasks at the edge of medical response system in wilderness areas; and provide the safety net that southern Arizona has come to expect.

Foto Friday – 1

Recently our dog had an incident where he hit his head pretty hard into a baby gate, the pressure mounted kind.  Within a half an hour he started losing his balance and couldn’t see out of his left eye.  After two visits to the vet and some steroids he is doing better but still can’t see out the left eye and has some balance issues.



This weeks photo challenge was depth. this situation has hit our family pretty deep and just shows the depth of love we have for him.  We hope he continues to progress the way he has been and he stays comfortable.

The Little Things – Water Bottle

image1-3The Water Bottle!  …an oddly personal choice that says a lot about you.  Do you use BPA free? Reusable? Are you on Team Camelbak or Team Nalgene?  How many stickers are on your favorite bottle, or do you keep it strictly business?

Currently I use five different water “bottles”:

Camelbak – 3L bladder in the pack

Hydroflask – 40oz in the Pack

Disposable – 2x 500ml to give away or for medical

Nalgene – 1L for daily use–this is the one I have all of my stickers on to show people how cool I am

MSR – 6L dromedary bag in the truck

Right now my favorite is the Hydroflask, this thing is like the Ferrari of water bottles.  Stainless steel with red powder coating, the inside has another layer with a vacuum sealed insulator in-between.  I do need to invest in the pop top for it, the wide mouth gets a little messy when your exhausted and trying to hold up 40oz of water with a steady hand.
