Morning Hike
« on: October 02, 2016, 09:33:55 AM »
I got to work at 5am on Friday to try and wrap up some paperwork that has been piling up.  About 7am, I needed a hike and get outside.  Luckily we have a canyon with hiking trails next to our place.



It was a glorious morning and I went looking for lizards and other wildlife.  Lots of funnel webs around...



I then saw a HUGE web in the scrub brush with a 4" Banded Garden Spider in the middle!



Such a cool spider.





Anyway, It was a nice 2 mile hike and I was back at my desk working on that paperwork pile.

It is not as nice as when I worked right across from Mission Bay and got to fish everyday, but having a hiking canyon next door isn't too shabby.

Nice hike Tom, and amazing webs.  Its getting closer to Halloween, so that's why the spiders are building such magnificent webs.   ;)

I've seen them before and found many old deer bones in my hikes down the canyon.  Never found any antlers though.

Thought it looked familiar! I used to work near there, a biotech company called Suneva just off of Pacific Center Blvd.
