Cool View from Coit

We squeezed in some more sightseeing around San Francisco after our dim sum brunch. On a whim, we headed up Coit Tower for another view of the city.
Coit Tower was built atop Telegraph Hill in 1933 at the bequest of Lillie Hitchcock Coit to beautify the City of San Francisco. The art deco tower, 210 feet (64 meters) of unpainted reinforced concrete was designed by architects Arthur Brown Jr. & Henry Howard with murals by 26 different artists and numerous assistants.

Here are some pics we took from the top of Coit Tower:
Afterwards, we took a drive down the famous Lombard Street. Lombard Street is best known for one block on Russian Hill between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, in which the roadway has eight sharp turns (or switchbacks) that have earned the street the distinction of being "the crookedest [most winding] street in the United States."
