Powell & Hyde Cable Car
What is everyone looking at to the left of this photo?? If you guessed the famous ‘Lombard Street’, also known as the crookedest street in the world, then you’d be 100% correct! I had arrived at the top of Lombard Street after a long day of exploring San Francisco, and just before I was about to walk down the walkway that goes alongside the 8 hairpin turns on the steep hill, this Powell & Hyde cable car rolled by. It looked pretty full, and although I didn’t ride on this particular one, I did take a ride on the Powell & Mason later on and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It sure beat walking up some of those hills!
