Unit #24 / 412 - Voyageurs National Park Andy has two bug bites on his leg which have been slower to heal than we hoped. Though I've kept an eye on these bright red dots to make sure they don't turn into some massive wolf spider wound, they had Andy's mind focusing on something different. "I can't remember the last time I had a bug bite," Andy said. "I must have been a kid, because I've forgotten how annoying they are!" But Andy's bug bites were a window into something bigger. Why do we get bug bites? Because we were outside in nature. Why hadn't Andy had any bug bites in years? See above. More than just annoying itches, these bug bites were a reminder of what happens when we become adults.
