Bunker Bill Monument

On step 10, you’re teeming with enthusiasm. On step 90, your thigh muscles begin to sting. On step 160, your heart is pounding and your lungs are begging for mercy. On step 225, a Zen-like trance washes over you. And then the gleaming beacon of hope, step 294, comes into focus. The end has arrived—you’re atop Bunker Hill Monument. Now soak in the endless city views and brace for the walk down.
