Anybody that lives in Southern California knows Highway 2, which is called the Angeles Crest Highway. This road runs from Azusa to Pasadena and beyond
along the ridge/rim of the mountains in So. Cal.
It's a nice pretty road, with many panoramic views over both sides of the ridges. (A LOT of JPL employees prefer this road to freeway 210 heading to
I have SEEN the Tarantulas when they are hatched on that road with my own eyes. They are EVERYWHERE!!!
When you drive over them with your car, your first reaction is to drive fast,until you hear them crunch.
Then you drive slow. Then it's a slow crunch.
You can't win. It is REALLY surreal. Tarantulas EVERYWHERE.
Yeah, their harmless. But fricking scarey.
I've only seen it once with my own eyes, but there are a bunch of people that actually go up there to watch the tarantula run.
