Views From a Bike

See also my previous Views From a Bike.

About 20 years ago there was a population explosion of these huge spiders (tarantulas)— I remember dozens of them squashed on the trail, with thousands more in abundance. I hadn’t seen them for some years. This one hangs out on the trail to Black Mountain in Monte Bello preserve. I say hello to him (probably a “her”) each time we meet. So far, she has not met my tire and I am on the lookout so that doesn’t happen.

As seen here, the early September fog holds about 15 miles inland from the Pacific, but a few miles to the north, it has already crept over the hills towards Portola Valley.
