Spiderworld

You may want to be careful if you are out in the Houston area woods as we are currently overrun with giant spiders!

One of hundreds.

Every patch of woods I've been in in the last month has been swarming with these big spiders. That's so cool!

They are over 4" from tip to tip, make webs 6-10 feet across and frikken everywhere. One the plus side, putting two of them in a jar together leads to some pretty awesome arachnidian battles. I wish I had gotten a picture of that.

Instead, here's a picture of Clark taking a picture of one of the spiders.

Unrelated to the spiders, I have some great news about Jesse Jones Park. They are in the process of rebuilding their canoe/kayak launch!

Cliff meets bulldozer, bulldozer wins.

This area currently has a big chainlink fence around it. I wonder if that means people shouldn't be poking around there? If that were the case they wouldn't have made the fence only seven feet tall. I don't know when the landing is supposed to be finished, but this new landing is going to make it a lot easier to take out here.

Adventure! Excitement! Arachnids!
