[lug] Traceroute question

I have a funny thing going on with traceroute. When I ssh away from my box 
to a machine elsewhere, and then traceroute back to my box, I go through 
about 12 hops mostly in the 13msec range, and then when I get to the last 
hop it's in the 250msec range.

But when I traceroute from my machine to the other one, it's the same 12 
hops but each one shows approximately 250msec.

I probably don't understand the output of traceroute. Can anyone explain 
what's happening?
