Leeches! Are you reading this, Mom?
Along with all the other posted notifications that appear on the pretty obvious board as you drive into the Todd Lake recreation area in the George Washington National Forest there’s a notification that leeches have been, for a long time, part of the Todd Lake ecosystem. It makes sense I know. I realize this now, but kids don’t care. I never read the signs when I was a kid. I realize that they’re pretty much harmless, but still, gross. I didn’t spend a lot of time in the lake, but I know I must have spent some amount of time in it.
