On day two we rolled up to the Joshua Tree National Park and I saw the tarantula sign from below on the window of the pay station:
ME: "So whats the likely hood that we will actually see one of these babies on the road?"
Park Ranger: "I've been here three years and I have only seen one. So your chances aren't that great."
Fifteen miles later and I spot one, we turn around and Chris saves it from it's almost guaranteed demise in the middle of the road.
That Park Ranger needs to get out a little more.
