San Francisco: Coit Tower

 Ash and I walked to the Coit Tower in San Francisco. It stands at 210 feet on Telegraph Hill.
In order to get there, we walked 2 miles and then up a hill, but it wasn't a normal hill, it was so hilly that steps were built into the sidewalk!  We climbed them and made it to the base of the tower.
Inside were beautiful murals painted on all the walls.  We had to purchase tickets and then ride the elevator up to the top where we had 360 degree views!
 Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz
 The Golden Gate Bridge
A view of the some neighborhoods
 When we were done, we went to Little Italy - the perfect place to go when you work up an appetite!
And look, here's the tower, complete with sign.
 And proof that we were in Little Italy
Our delicious lunch - gnocchi
And Ash's lunch.
