OK. If you take Pacific Coast Hwy from the approximate
location of Purple Canyon Trail in the Rolling Hills/Palos Verdes area to Crystal Cove State Park in Laguna Beach it is about
37 miles, according to MapQuest.
Both of these areas tested positive for Borrelia in Ixodes Pacificus ticks. Right in between is where my son met his ticks. Appx. 18 miles up from Crystal Cove.
Always remember there's no Lyme in So. California (because there's no deer in So. Cal).
Did I mention seeing 2 deer as we drove home yesterday through the hills? It's actually the very first live wild deer I HAVE seen in Orange County in my life although I'd see tracks. I also saw a shot deer once. Perhaps why they are shy?
