I drove sunnyside last week when I went to the zoo with my family and it is straight uphill! No wonder you are such an amazing runner. Holy crap what is the elevation gain on that route?

Rachelle - allie rides a camel UP sunnyside every morning (you can apparently rent them from the zoo if you say you are holding a live nativity scene) and then she just sprints back down :-)

Do you run Sunnyside all the way up to the zoo? That is a very steep run. I would like it on the way back. Years ago when when one of my daughters lived at University Village I would run with her up past the zoo. Nice job.

how can you pass up a camel ride? especially when it cuts out the hardest part of the run. the zoo is running a january special right now on rentals -- 2 camels for 2 hours and it's only $499.99 per hour. it takes about 1.75 hours to get up sunnyside via camel, so this is a great deal.
nancy -- i don't go all the way to the zoo -- just to foothill and then i turn and head into sugarhouse.

I actually ran past the zoo and up the canyon once when my daughter lived in SLC. It is very steep and I didn't have any company, glad you got some for once.

Nice allie! The camels at the zoo are sad.

Great run with great company for you. That's a nice deal on the camels, I'll go check it out.
