The Historic Washington Park mail drop. This little box is located in the Zoo Store at the OREGON ZOO. The Zoo is in Portland, Oregon and Washington Park is a lovely hillside sanctuary connected to Portland's Forest Park, the largest park within a city in the United States. Washington Park offers the Portland Rose Garden, Japanese Garden and the Hoyt Arboretum as well as the Zoo. This little post box will allow your letters to be SPECIAL POST MARKED with an Oregon Zoo stamp.

Three Cheers for the Zoo!!! Hippo Hippo Hooray!

They specialize in Elephas Maximus and celebrated the 50 year birthdate of Packy this past month. Take a look at their website  if you like.

(special thanks to S. Brennan and D. Reid DeMeo for the geek factoids!)

Innovative Technologies -- The Postal Service has the largest gantryrobotic fleet in the world using 174 systems to move 314,000 mail trays per day.

 (Isn't that an elephant sized workload?!)
