I rode out to Cochrane again today to take on The Hill™ - it almost won this time.

This is the lumber mill on the east end of Cochrane. Little Known Fact About D’Arcy #231: I briefly worked for one of the housing construction companies that built some of the giant houses along the river - the same company that built our own much-less-giant house.

The Hill™

2009-05-03-the-hille284a2 I made it up the big hill coming out of Cochrane toward Calgary - without stopping, or dying. It’s the longest hill I’ve climbed - 2km of 7% grade.

2009-04-26-birds-wide they sounded like seagulls, but looked like terns or something. I can’t seem to remember squat from my zoology undergrad days. I’ll just call them “birds” and be done with it. There were many ponds along my route, but these birds - hundreds of them - were only found on this one.
