Filbert Steps…

This morning, my coworker Ed invited me to go with him up the Filbert Steps on Telegraph Hill (San Francisco), which is just 2 blocks away from my work. So at lunchtime, we started our trek, well equiped with our cameras.

I was amazed at the beauty of the gardens along the steps. (Am I sounding gay here?)The homeowners there must have buku bucks, because those propeties have such a lovely view.

We eventually ended up at the Coit Tower atop Telegraph Hill. I didn’t realize how close Coit Tower is to my work.

  • I’m sorry, Joel! Wishing strength for your mother…

  • Lucky you! The pix are so beautiful.

    I mentioned in my journal during my trip to San Francisco this winter how Coit Tower has been a special place I wanted to see. I did not get to stop and see it this last time, but hopefully next time. I did get to see it but only from a far.

    Beautiful beautiful!

    • Yup, it’s a totally different experience close up. It’s also a different experience from just going to the “touristy” part of Coit Tower as opposed to hiking down to the “local’s” area… that’s where the lovely garden are.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the photos :)

      oh… and thank you for the card… Happy Belated Earth Day to you :)

  • Absolutely wonderful photos!
