San Francisco and Napa: Top of Lombard St.

Top of Lombard St.

Lombard St. is billed as the "Crookedest Street in America." It has a number of hairpin turns, and there's always a line of cars waiting to drive down. When my parents took my family to SF back in 1968, we cabbed down. This time, Jim and I walked. Note the stairs in place of a standard sidewalk.
