wow – that is sure one big escalator…
Great photo. (I used to be afraid to ride escalators….really!)
I forgot to ask earlier-where on your trip was this escalator?
Oh wow… it does look rather heavenly with that glow doesn’t it?! Great shot.
How cool. I love that song, BTW.
I’ve always been fascinated by super-long escalators…in Washington, D.C., they had to construct shelters over some of the ones that initially seemed to go straight up into the sky, for maintenance reasons. If you walk up all the steps of the one on Wheaton Station when it’s not moving, your workout will consist of 190 steps. (And if you stand still while it’s moving, Real Washingtonians will understand, sort of–as long as you stand on the right so they can walk around you. Metrofolks say that standing still on escalators may actually extend the working lives of the machines. Real Washingtonians reply, “Yes, and it’s nice for pickpockets, too,” and keep walking.)
Did you ride it to see? 😀
Thanks for stopping by, Marie. It is such a wonderful place–more on that next week I hope.
Whoa! An escalator that big has to be in an airport… At least that’s my guess, and I’m sticking to it.
Actually in a library. More to come on that later. It was pretty amazing.
