An awesome first rappelling experience. The canyon was very dry, some sections would clearly be much more difficult during a wetter period. The hike out is a bear. Poison oak was unavoidable. I really wanted the hike to be over about six hours before it actually was.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
