[5]April 14, 2009
Vicki is informing me about having to watch for ticks and I reassure her that there won't be any as it has not been warm enough yet, and they won't be be out until the temperature gets to at least 70 degrees. It isn't two minutes later that she draws my attention to one crawling on my pants leg. I am supposed to be the biologist? How do women know these things? A while later I feel another one crawling on my hand. Torrey Creek valley is the only place I can say I have ever encountered ticks in this part of the country though I'm guessing further east on the reservation which is at a lower elevation, drier and milder one would encounter them.
