About This Walk

Come join me as we walk around and take photos of the various animals and flora of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.    The walk itself is free, but you will be responsible for paying your own admission to the zoo.    If we have enough people sign up(at least 15) we can look into getting a group rate and discount.    I myself am a member of the zoo and have been taking my cameras to the zoo for many years taking pictures of the animals.   I’m still trying for the elusive penguin photos, but have not been successful(1 time I was and the memory card corrupted before I could transfer the photos from my camera).    After the walk we can meet at Starbucks in Harmarville(just a short ride up route 28) where we can pick our photos that we would like to enter for the various contests put out by Kelby One that day.   Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and drink plenty of water and use sun protection as I’m sure it’s going to be a hot one that day!

The Time Is HereAugust 13th, 2022

Well the day is finally here. I can’t wait to meet you all. I’m sitting to the left of the escalator as you’re getting off just past the Asian Lanterns. See you all soon!

Beautiful Mild Weather & Other ThingsAugust 12th, 2022

Hi All!
As we are looming with our walk right around the corner(literally 24 hours from now) it looks like we couldn’t ask for better weather with a high in the mid 70’s . The animals should be very active throughout our time at the zoo(or so I believe). I will be there at the top of the escalators/elevators standing by the Zoo sign no later than 9:15 AM. If you want to walk together we can, or we can each be a lone wolf or any combination. I will then be leaving the zoo around 12:30pm to head towards Starbucks in Harmarville where we can get together and go over our favorite photos from the walk. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at matt@mattmphoto.com or text my cell (724)875-0782. Looking forward to seeing you all there!!

    Bill Morgenstern How many people have signed up for this walk?

    Bill Morgenstern I am going solo. Sorry - not from Pittsburgh. Just visiting grandkids so I’ll thought I’d join the walk.

    Bill Morgenstern Any suggestions for equipment at the Pittsburgh Zoo?
