  1. I was in Anchorage in the summer of 98 when I was 11. I was in love with this raspberry bush in the yard of the house where we stayed for two weeks. after about the second trip to the raspberry bush I made a horrific realization that the beloved raspberrys were being used as hosts to these nasty, nightmare-inducing arachnids! mug scared the shit out of me! I loved Alaska -we visited homer Denali kenai river but I will never forget those haunting spiders!!!!!

    • That’s so crazy! Maybe they really like the raspberry bushes. I will be wary in the future. I actually had one of these spiders on my ARM after walking through a web that summer. It was terrifying and I let out a primal scream lol. I don’t know if they bite but I am going to assume so!
