Tarantula Posted on 07 24 08 by Liz Stanley I’ve seen two of these guys on runs up the canyon by my house. Scary! I kept on imagining it following me down the canyon, so I guess it’s helping my speed. Has anyone else seen tarantulas in the wasatch mountains?
yeah i’m still on for the half!
No tarantulas. Just many dead carcuses and strangely on my last canyon run, a peacock. Rattlers are what I watch out for!BTW you still on for the TOU half? I am wiped from an 8 miler yesterday up the canyon.
I stumbled on your link from Design Mom. My daugter lives in Linden next to the mountian and has had a tarantula in the front yard and one on her stairs going to the basemsnt. Not uncommon at all I guess.Joan
Telling me that they’re harmless (which I know) doesn’t help me feel less freaked out in any way. A tarantula is a large, hairy, spider…that is enough for me to get the heebie-jeebies. I remember almost stepping on one when I went running in Provo once (over by the riverwoods). Yuck.
totally creepy. yeah i read online that most types are harmless but they still made me run just a tad faster
they are harmless. i used to stop and pick them up. i don’t think i could now. they are creepy.
These are in the canyons near your home??? You should move!
