So earlier this week, Rocky and I set out for Pueblo to look for giant spiders. The first morning we had walked down to the lake shore for Rocky to take a swim. On the way back to camp there was a spider trucking along up on the flats. They can really move along. Got a couple of pics. Rocky didn't quite know what to think of it. I didn't let him get real close. I kind of kept my eye out for them the rest of the time we were sitting around camp. They seem pretty docile, but I don't know what Rocky would do with one if left to his instincts.
Didn't see a whole lot of other wildlife. Lots of bunnies, he usual curved-bill thrashers and canyon towhees were around camp. Saw the resident osprey catch a fish. We camped in the same spot we camped in a couple weeks back in late August when we saw all the little lizards. No sign of them this time. I wonder if they have already gone in for the winter? It was quite warm this trip, but no sign of them.
