I had one stuck in my shirt after doing some caches in the Christina Lake area two weeks ago. I've heard that they follow the snow line up the mountains but not sure how that translates to this spring, where we have very little snow?

We have lots of deer ticks in the Hope area, they carry lyme disease. Hikes to watch out for are the 1847 trail at Alexander, Thacker Mt., Landstrom Ridge, Spirit Caver and Mt. Lincoln in Yale. Usually by June they aren't so bad but at this time of the year a 2 hour hike can lead to 20 ticks on your dog.
