Just grab a couple dark-colored headnets, stock up with some successful bug spray/dope…and you’ll be fine. Temps are always up and down a bit, but they’re between the mid_50s to lower_60s already…up there. Looks like a promising June….fwiw. Might try stepping outside the official trail now & then….to any pond or lake. Really tough to predict where they won’t be…..of course the wetland marshes and low terrain along the shores of such are usually their havens…but during June and July “When” is often more definitive than “Where”. The best aid is often a good breeze…
