One of the issues I always had with hiking
across sagebrush (in northern UT) during the
summer was the incredible array of TICKS that I picked up on my skin and clothing.

How do you handle "blood-sucking" insects?
Do you eat a special diet, or have you been
doing it for so long that it doesn't bother you ???

Thanks, Melinda.

Yes, this was last weekend. I don’t like ticks and I doubt anyone else likes them either. They’re just something you have to get use to when living in the high desert. I haven’t been bit too many times so I guess I’m lucky.
