San Francisco - Coit Tower

Before leaving San Francisco the next morning, we made a quick stop at Coit Tower. The 210-foot tall tower sits in Pioneer Park, atop Telegraph Hill.


The views from the top were great, although we were looking into the sun for most of the view (which made taking pictures a tad bit difficult). This is the view from one of the windows, which had a thick layer of plexiglass on it. Somehow people have managed to get coins through the narrow gap and onto the ledge.


Here's the view looking towards the Bay Bridge:


And looking towards downtown...


It's amazing to see the city from above, since it helps to show just how dense everything is there.



The shadow of the Tower with Alcatraz in the distance...


And one last view from the Tower. From here we would head out of the city and travel east to a place in California that has long been on our list of places to visit...
