Found this posted on reddit... It's California Street in San Francisco...

I stared at this picture and thought several times, one thought right after another, I freaking walked up this more than once. On purpose.

Now I think I need some retroactive Ibuprofen. Or vodka.

Damn, I wish I had some vodka...

I think I see a reason you have back and foot soreness...

That is a very steep hill! You are a tough lady to be able to walk up it on purpose. I agree with the Vodka.

That can't be real. Is that real? That's insane!

Is that a traffic light...on a hill?! :D But seriously, I greatly admire your stamina!

Yep, that's a traffic light. Not even the worst place for on in SF. Driving there is an acquired skillset, and I avoid it.

And it is real...what's not as apparent is that there's a break from the uphill grade every block with cross streets. So there are spots to rest on the way up, but it's still all kinds of fun to make your way from the bottom to the top.

What gets me is that every freaking time there's some little old Asian man or woman who just blows past me and isn't even breathing hard.
