Wyoming, Mountains, June........... Noted.
I will say that I spent a few days in June in Idaho just west of Yellowstone. I had never seen mosquitoes like that in my life. We stayed in a cabin and in the evening hours you would have to run from the car to the door and you still got hit several times each trip. Every shaft of sunlight looked like one of those dream sequences where little puffs are floating in the air shimmering but it was really a nightmare of hordes of blood sucking demons set to pounce upon you the moment you emerged from any shelter.
Something about pine trees too. If you were near a pine tree they were just unbearable. But near a hardwood there always seemed to be less of them.
