The prompt: Tower

On March 13, 1994 – the hottest March 13th on record for San Francisco – my husband and I climbed Coit Tower in Telegraph Hill. All 210 feet. To reach the observation tower at the top – with its 360 degree view of the city.

We had just arrived in California for a much anticipated weeklong vacation. Jet lag hadn’t set in yet.

The long climb…well worth it.
