Photo of Coit Tower, San Francisco in San Francisco, USA

This photo shows Coit Tower, which is also called the Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, in San Francisco. I remember it being something of a steep climb to get to the top of the hill it's on. From the top, you can see many of the landmarks in San Francisco, including Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. When I was there, a guide told me that it's been suggested the tower was created to resemble a firefighter's hose. Lillian Coit was the mascot of the city's firefighters after she helped out with an emergency at 15 years of age, and she is still the matron saint of San Francisco firefighters.
