more elevation stuff

This elevation business got me curious about other rides. Here's the elevation profile for a favorite training ride (if you follow the link, notice that the mapping program doesn't allow you to retrace your path--as in out-and-back--very well...the sections on Bendersville Rd and the Kings Gap climb are all screwed up):
Perhaps because it's so long and not so steep, or perhaps because I ride it all the time, it surprises me just how much bigger (higher) the climb to Big Flat is compared to anything else around. Of what's relatively close by, the only climb I can think of that's bigger is the full climb up Cowan's Gap (not just to the state park, but all the way up). I should climb that more often...
