I’ve taken some poetic license with Rolly’s escape up Smuggler’s Canyon. As you’ll see from the photo below, there are hills he could climb to escape from a car. The main hill in the background here is manmade, though. This area was, and still is, known as Smuggler’s Gulch. But there was no hill there before. It’s landfill, put in by the Department of the Interior. Still, he could make it up to the fence.
