Big spider

I'll see if I can get a copy of the photos Stephy took, but today was a treat:  Late this past morning, I looked up to see a huge desert tarantula crawling up (thankfully) the window of my office door.

Pretty much like the pictures I've seen:  Big.  Hairy.  Slow-moving.  Kinda shy, so we hung back and left it alone.

Eventually, it crawled up the wall and up onto the roof.  Anyway, it was just cool.

    I remember once coming back from the beach as a kid, and my dad stopped the car to let a few tarantula cross the road.
    it was pretty neat to watch them, would love to see the photo if it turns out.
