In the northwest corner of San Francisco stands a windswept, foggy hilltop. At one time it was so out of the way the City decided to dig up most of its cemeteries and graveyards relocate the remains out there to the “new” City Cemetery. As San Francisco expanded, it was decided the land was too important for a cemetery. The gravestones were removed and most, though not all, of the remains were dug up and moved down the Peninsula. San Francisco sent its dead to the suburbs. Lincoln Park with its golf course and the Legion of Honor are now atop that hill. The fog remains, and regardless of the landscaping, nature encroaches on the park with its packs of feisty raccoons and now coyotes.
