Biking in Taiwan...

President Bishop and I recently biked into the mountains.  Behind us is a squash garden.  However, the road we are standing on is at least ten feet above the garden floor.  These squash plants are growing on ten foot stilts with wires for them to cling to.  The squash hang like grapes when ripe.  I guess this prevents bugs and beasts from eating them.  

Here are some photo's is of me and my new bike. 

While biking we saw this huge spider hanging from a tree behind me so we stopped to take a picture of it.

I imagine it was at least eight inches from side to side.
