    Google has removed the outline of Sam Houston National Forest allowing that someone using the area legally might wander onto private property and be in trouble.

Google has gone ultra liberal political hater of all things not left of the middle.

    Holy moly, this forest was filled with ticks! My wife and I walked half a mile through a trail and had 13 ticks on us when we were done! Our two dogs had at least 8 each on them. Very gross. Very disgusting. We will never hike there again. Signed, -Ticked off
