The spider is a harmless orb weaver(a female) which spins a suspended web which resembles a multi-spoked wagon wheel. You know, the kind often suspended across a pathway.

See "Spiders Commonly Found in Portland" - http://web.pdx.edu/~smasta/MastaSpidersYard.html. She's likely to be the first web-building species on the list.
