Freaking out that I might have bedbugs. (Gross) pictures inside.

(Obviously pictures of bug bites on woefully pale skin). Keeping this short, I flew from Boston to Vegas and drove to Utah last weekend, with no bug bites in sight. Stayed in Utah, near Zion, Friday and Saturday nights. Flew to Los Angeles Sunday afternoon where I've been since then. Noticed bites starting yesterday and today. My suspicious mind thinks that I might have picked them up in Utah (FYI, staying on a ranch near Zion, in close proximity to horses) and brought them back with me, or gotten bitten there.
They're mildly itchy but not distractingly so. I've checked my bed and luggage but haven't found anything telltale (smears of blood, droppings, exoskeletons, etc.) There are tiny flecks of what look like black dust on my bed but they're completely dry and roll off when you flick them.
