but seriously, this view.

Again and again I've complimented San Francisco on being oh-so photogenic, and when you're standing at Coit Tower on a sunny day, beneath a cloudless sky, it sort of takes your breath away. You can see the Golden Gate Bridge, colorless against the hazy horizon. You can see the gorgeous green foothills of Marin County, the bluest of bays dotted with stark-white sailboats, and the rolling, sweeping hills of the city, its roller-coaster streets lined with pastel homes and the palest of skyscrapers.

Around and around, a 360-degree view, and your breath, it just slips away.
