Didn't come on the rattlesnake hunt because they're deficient in the leg division? These puppies have plenty of legs! The Stanford hills seem to be a good place for tarantula-spotting in early fall, so we'll go looking either there or at Arastradero. About 3-4 miles, easy pace, some hills, and maybe the occasional horrible hairy spider. Wear comfortable hiking footwear, and consider bringing water and perhaps sun protection. Meet at carpool point #6.
Directions to LPSS carpool point #6 (Page Mill / 280 Park 'N Ride): Exit 280 onto Page Mill Road west (Los Altos Hills) in Palo Alto. The lot is next to the freeway. If looking for overflow parking, beware of the "No Parking" signs along Arastradero. Map: http://tinyurl.com/2tq9rk
