A good reminder not to go prancing around off-trail. Fairly large, as ticks go.

Description

Looks to be a small tick. Has 3 legs on each side of its body for total of six legs. Has 2 antennae. It is flat and not engorged (full from blood). I am not 100% certain that the classification, provided above, is correct. It has a cream colored "n" shape on its back up near its head. When viewed under a 20x magnifying glass in appears to look like a flattened raisin.
