Made an early season run to Sauer's Mountain outside of Leavenworth. The day was made before we left the trail head as we met Mr. Sauer. Getting ready to do a little trail work with a friend, this 80-something is setting a high bar for giving back to trails. The trail just opened for the season, it is muddy down low, and snowy up high. Wildflowers have NOT appeared. The outer end of the "loop" trail has a closed private property sign, there is a primative bushwack that keeps you on Forest service land to the left near the sign. We usually take the loop trail on the way back down. IMPORTANT NOTE: Ticks are out in force, if you touch any of the brush adjacent to the trail, take a moment a clear the ticks (yes multiple) that may have jumped on you. Check 4 legged companions carefully. The trail delivered spectacular views of all of the valleys and ranges around Leavenworth. As noted in the hiking guide, the trails starts on Mr. Sauer's private land, park politely, keep the trail pristine. Enjoy this early season gift.

I'm confused by this sentence: "Ticks are out in force, if you brush against any of the brush, take a moment a clear the fleas (yes multiple) that may have jumped on you." Are you talking about ticks AND fleas, or just ticks and didn't mean to say fleas?
