Freakishly large mountain friends

I like to make friends in the mountains. All of the bugs here are three times larger, like in Super Mario Bros.'s Giant World.

Me high-fiving the biggest daddy longlegs that I've ever seen.

I watch a black butterfly fall and sweep up only to break back a second before flying into a spider web. The web stretches five feet, anchored in four corners to bushes and its creater rests at the centre, plucking the strings with its knobby, twig-like legs, as if playing a harp. I'm as stunned as the butterfly. "That's a big effing spider."
