Peak to Peak Walk
On September 7, 2013, we participated in the Peak2Peak Walk sponsored by the
Walk San Francisco advocacy organization. On the 12.6 mile walk, there are
10 peaks/hills: Dorothy Erskine Park, Mount Davidson, Forest Hill, Golden Gate
Heights, Turtle HIll, Strawberry Hill, Prayerbook Cross, Washington HS, Legion
of Honor and Sutro Heights. Our group is below at left.
Below at right is Jon at Dorothy Erskine Park.
Below us are views of San Bruno mountain and
The next peak is Mount Davidson 925 ft including the Mt. Davidson Cross.
There were great views of the financial district and the
entire city from Mt. Davdson. We enjoyed walking the different neighborhoods along the way. The Moraga
Steps were a pleasant surprise when we looked back from our descent.
This panorama is taken facing north capturing Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate
Bridge and Mt Tam in the distance.
Jon went to Washington, D.C. and visited the Pentagon, Naval Academy, and
National Air and Space Museum
In late September, our friend and colleague, Tony Peach (51), died after a
protracted battle with cancer. Tony worked at Autodesk with us and was a really
great guy. We will miss him greatly.
