A few days ago, in celebration of the near integral number of times the earth has circled the sun since Jonathan exited his mother, we climbed Cayoosh pass.

Cayoosh Pass: 13.5 km in length at 7.9% average grade for a vertical rise of 1056 m — first two miles at 10.25%

Alpe d’Huez: 13.8 km in length at 7.9% average grade for a vertical rise of 1127 m — first two miles at 9.7%

At the top of the pass is a spectacular view of a glacier. Sadly, I don't carry my SLR on the bicycle, so it remains only in my memory. You will have to content yourself with this pedestrian photo of our bicycles piled in the back of the rental car. If you'd like to see the glacier, you'll have to climb Cayoosh.
