Winter is almost here. That means a couple of things. First off, it's been cold at night so all the ticks are dead. Second, there isn't a lot of sunshine left to enjoy in New England so it's best to get outside and soak it all up. As it turns out, only one of these statements are true. The human found a tick on his hiking companion. I made out much better: I had a bath to remove all the forest dirt but there were not ticks to be found on my body.
Below are a few images from my adventures today.
