Fremont Older hiking and tick removal

We went on a hike with Kargo recently in the Fremont Older Open Space Preserve and a good time was had by all.

After the hike, we discovered that a nasty, nasty tick had attached itself to Kargo behind her right ear. We named the tick "Terrence" but that was probably unnecessary. We had purchased this Tick Twister tool some time ago but never tried it out so this was our chance to do so. Let me tell you -- that tool is the greatest thing ever. Even though the tick was still very small, it was easy to latch onto it and it only took about 4 twists for the tick to let go. I used to do the removal by using a gloved hand and twisting the tick with my fingers but this is much faster and easier.
