When I was in college my brother and I hiked all the way to the river 
and back out in one was a heck of a hike.  We first went to 
Yavappi (sp?) point and looked down and said "Hey its not much 
further to the bottom, lets go!  Well, the next part was the LONG 
part.  It was fun and not to hard on me but back then I was running 5 
miles a day, my brother was almost dead....

I was 21 and young and dumb back memory of how hard it was 
is very vague now....
