When we got back to our hotel/hostel, we decided to venture up one of San Francisco's many famed hills. Not nearly as "easy" as it might seem. We went to the top of Telegraph Hill and then to the top of Coit Tower where we witnessed quite a view of San Francisco, Lillie Hitchcock Coit's favorite city. She donated the funds to the city to beautify the area. While she lived in SF, she was known as the # 5 Fire Company's mascot who helped rally them to the top of Telegraph Hill during a fire. The tower is intended to look like a fire hose nozzle.
