    I Think it is kind of cool that the spider was found in blacksmith fork canyon and I live around that area. Also I like to hunt up there with my dad and I am surprised that there is a spider that is unique to that area.[smile]

    Just great! I guess the next step is getting it listed on the endangered species list since it is only found here. Thus there can be very few of them in the world. The next logical step would be to stop all motorized traffic and limit foot traffic to trails in any of these 3 canyons so as to not disturb their environment. The last step would be to declare everything east of logan as a wilderness study area. This would make sure the spider is properly protected.
