Official Post from Billy Wilson: This week I did a lot of cycling, going on a number of longer adventures, and some social group rides. On my longer cycling adventures I took a number of photos as can be seen in the collage included in this post. From left to right, top to bottom; an unnamed stream that crosses the Old Goulais Bay

I liked this photo of myself from yesterday's cycling adventure so I thought I'd make it my new profile picture.

Here's an overview of the projects and activities that I worked on and partook in over the past week. The collage included in the post depicts four images, from left to right, top to bottom; part of my physical elevation map depicting Ogidaki Mountain which I climbed this week, baklava which I baked this week, a beaver pond seen during my adventure during which I climbed Ogidaki Mountain, and finally a picture of myself on the aforementioned adventure standing outside of a historic forest ranger station building at the base of the mountain.
Official Post from Billy Wilson: This week was quite eventful. I continued to participate in social group cycling rides, volunteer, and apply for jobs. I also went on a long adventure ride to the top of Ogidaki Mountain, the highest point above sea-level in all of the District of Algoma, in which I reside. The two bottom photos inc

Here's the first thing that I've baked since moving into my new apartment! It's baklava. I've never made it before. It was quite labour intensive, I had to butter 52 individual sheets of phyllo dough.

Today I cycled up the Old Goulais Bay Road, up the Mile Hill, and then down Old Trout Lake Road, in total 73.6 km. Much of the ride was on washed out gravel roads. The black flies and mosquitoes were pretty intense.

Yesterday I cycled from Sault Ste. Marie to St. Joseph Island, around the island, and back home, a 194.3 km journey. It was a lovey day. I saw a couple of ruffed grouse, porcupines, and sandhill cranes along the way. Overall, this week I've cycled 522.2 km, a new weekly record for me. I'm quite hungry and tired from all of the cycling.

That's some ferocious riding, mate - well done!
Great way to see the sights too, it would appear; great photos.

Yesterday I decided to cycle to the top of the highest peak in the District of Algoma, Ogidaki Mountain. It was a 172.3 km ride during which I ascended a total of 1,797 m. Much of the ride was on gravel. I was excited to see one of the last ranger stations still standing and I was able to get a number of photos of it including its interior. The climb up to the summit was steep (20% in some spots) and washed out. Unfortunately, when I got to the summit the old fire tower had been torn down. It was standing last year at this time according to Google Earth imagery.

Yesterday I decided to cycle to Tahquamenon Falls and back, a 255.1 km round trip, my longest yet! I was out for more than 14 hours, more than 12 of them were spent pedaling. I was surprised to see a lot of snow still in the forest.
