After deciding to visit California for our road trip I knew one thing I wanted to do - that was to take a ride on the San Francisco Cable Car. It's such a famous and iconic mode of transport that there was no way I was going to pass up on taking a trip. You can find out a whole host of information about San Francisco's transport system here. 

It was also one of the photo opportunities I had mentally prepared for. Taking a ride on the tram was a great experience even though I'm sure it isn't used my many locals. It felt very much like a tourist only mode of transport. Still, I wasn't at all fussed.

I would have liked to have taken this photo on one of the steeper slopes as I feel it would have made a better photograph however I still like how it came out.
