... a lucky chance.
Today's walk downtown took place in bright sun and a quite stiff (and chilly!) breeze. Fortunately, the wind was from the West, so I had the downhill while walking upwind, and the wind at my back when walking uphill. That slope by the Engineering Labs is still pretty challenging.
To the Pufferbelly Depot (1.1 miles) 16 minutes; back up the hill, nineteen minutes. I took it a little slow on behalf of my heartrate.
