It's All In the Details: Lombard Street

We started our tourism day out by catching a bus up Columbus to Lombard Street. It was beautiful. My mother was with us for so much of this trip. I find more and more of her as I look back at the details. She was woven all throughout the details of this trip. Even at Lombard Street, hydrangeas, one of her favorite flowers, overflowed along the edges of the charming brick, crookedest street ever. They were as big and beautiful as ever, refusing to pack it up for the cool October weather. I'm sure she visits them quite often. I know she did that day with us.

It's such a stunning sight. Unfortunately my "camera-phone-pictures" don't do it any justice at all.
They remind me of my mom so much.
It's so interesting to watch cars travel down this road.
The charming brick just sets the finishing touches oh so perfectly

We decided we aught not climb the entire hill due to our upcoming race, so we opted for halfway. This is the view from halfway up.
We couldn't leave without walking on at least part of the famous street.
