A friend shared a map that would drop out of Snottsdale into a canyon and back up again. It was as advertised, and fun to figure out how to hook up the bypass through Pinnacle Peak Road.
Riding out I skidded to brake as this web spanned 4ft across the trail. My front wheel took out all the damage to the circle you see. Six more inches and I would have swallowed this spider, which was the size of my thumb.
down in the canyon past the dead end on Pinnacle Peak road, and many wide patches of datura in bloom.
one hour later, the spider was again ready to eat
