I was bike riding on La Tuna Canyon trail in Southern California. I fell once and put my arm down in poison oak without realizing it. A little while later I had a much worse fall (over the handlebars in down a cliff!) While trying to stop myself from falling too far down this face, I bloodied my arm, pushing the poison oil UNDER my skin. This picture is from about five days after touching the cursed plant.
