Rocky Mountain Wood Tick
Dermacentor andersoni

or possibly
Dermacentor variabilis (dog tick)


wood tick
I found this horrible creature on my shower curtain. I think I brought it home with
me from Wasatch County earlier that week and it had stealthed its way out of my
 hamper
from when I changed clothes and showered.  It was either waiting to get me
or
possibly my cats. Yucky! Carol Davis 5-28-2008
