Randi Berklande picked up an unwanted guest while going for a hike over the weekend.
Berklande posted a picture of a wood tick she found after hiking on Carrot Mountain near Kelowna. A few hours later, she posted she had found another tick in her backpack.
While it is still winter, the Vernon resident posted the warning to others that ticks seem to be out earlier than usual this year.
