I've loved towers since I was a kid, absorbed in fairytales. The Desert View Watchtower at The Grand Canyon's south rim puts a real smile on my face. Five years ago, we arrived early, but stayed through sunset. We climbed inside for spectacular views and we sat beside it to watch the sun sink into the canyon. Impressive to know that a woman, Mary Colter was the architect in 1932!
Towers I Love: Climbing Giotto's bell tower in Florence... The 3 grand, stone & brick water towers still standing tall in St. Louis... The vintage water tower beside old sugar mill in Sugar Land, TX... Shanghai's Oriental Pearl Tower... The Eiffel Tower and Pisa's Leaning Tower of course!
