Fan running after going up mountains?

For the second time, after going up a series of steep hills and getting out and parking the car, there seems to be a noise like a whirring fan coming front the front grill. Is this normal?? What is it?

Sorry if I sound incompetent :(

Sounds like the car got hot from all that hard work. Normal.

I've noticed that after really beating on the car and not giving it real cool down time that the fan wil stay on for a while.
