Way out in the desert where the cactus bloom and thrive lived a mother tarantula.
We saw this beauty as we were driving home from Crown King, it was crossing the road.
My friend Melinda has a house up in Crown King Arizona a tiny little town 26 miles on a dirt road. We spent our Saturday up at the Ripley's "big house". It was nice to get away from phx, and enjoy the beauty of Az. The boys enjoyed jumping on beds, playing outside, and playing game cube. I enjoyed talking with Melinda, and taking pictures. Their house is old with lots of character. The town of Crown King was a old mining town. The Ripley's have a big walk in safe that was used by the miners to lock up their gold, and precious rocks. A very cool house, with cool history. I really enjoyed the adventure. Thanks Melinda.
