Today was a very unsettling day weather-wise starting with a viscous thunder and lightning storm with lots of rain, enough to make a mess of any dirt trail. That coupled with a heavy growth of all sorts of plants and trees made it easy to avoid this today.
I have no desire to encounter ticks - I had enough of that in Africa and barely lived to tell about it. The mosquitos are nothing short of horrendous here. The graphic had an actual size - I removed that because they really feel this size.
