Escalation at the San Diego Zoo

Filed under: San Diego Zoo — Tags: , , , — washaw @ 6:00 am

My wife and I wear our pedometers when visiting either the Zoo or Wild Animal Park.   But the Zoo has some pretty steep canyons and riding the escalator back up to the top usually provides a needed break.  We make up the missed steps on level ground.  🙂  

The zoo escalators are pretty long but no where near a record.  The longest single-span uninterrupted escalator in the Western Hemisphere is at the Wheaton station of the Washington Metro system (230 feet long, 2 min 45 sec ride time).  I have actually taken the third longest ride, the one at Rosslyn station (205 ft 8 in).

  2. Your blog has been included in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the “City Daily Photo Blog” lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a “city” but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
