Coit Tower--we're getting closer! The tower was built as a tribute to Lillie Hitchcock Coit, quite an unusual woman in San Francisco's history. Read about her here.
More steps to climb
Sara and Rich
We left the tower and took a different trail back down. We kept hearing lots of birds and wondered if the sounds were coming from the famous parrots of Telegraph Hill. As we climbed down some steps, sure enough, we spied a whole slew of the brightly colored birds. If you are not familiar with them, you can read about them by clicking here.
Rich and I were both shooting photo after photo with two different cameras but here are just a few. The parrots were so cute! They were flying around, playing with each other and perching on the trees above us. Then they all took off and landed on another tree further down, where we were able to get more pictures of them sitting in a big group together.
