Default Escalators in the Grand Cannyon?
Big news for Grand Canyon Visitors: The National Park Service will be installing a system of escalators in the Grand Canyon so tourists will not have to hike to reach the bottom.

Finally us overweight people will get to see the bottom of the canyon. For a mere 5k. Thanks for the breaking news story. Are there escalators coming back up too?

Great question. I telephoned Ranger Smith for a response. He said, and I quote,
