Hiked over from East Sister. It was a nice hike through old growth mountain hemlock broken up by small meadows. The descent down The Nub trail was a bit of an ordeal due to the poor trail, big descent, the fire, bad knees and the sheer exhaustion of finishing up a 24 mile, three summit hike.
"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."
