Last Day in San Francisco: Coit Tower

This was one of the last things that we did in San Francisco--the Coit Tower. It is on top of Telegraph Hill, and is 21 stories high on the top of a hill, and the only way for us to get up was up a rickety old-fashioned elevator! Scary!

The top is an open tower with large windows, and the lower windows that we could see through had glass coverings that people slid coins and mementos through.

This one cracked me up. Amidst coins from all over the world (maybe not in this photo but I have others, honest!) some family left temporary graffiti. So of course I had to take a picture of it! They will be remembered.

This is one of the views from the top--another view was over the bay. It was quite foggy that afternoon!

On our way out we also drove through Lombard Street (the crookedest street in San Francisco!) Whoo-eee, I would not want to live there because of the parking!
