Apparently, the Top of Twin Peaks is Closed Now, But Our Tourists Don’t Seem to Care – Four Fences Knocked DownMonday, February 13th, 2017
I don’t exactly know how our SFGov wants people to ascend Twin Peaks these days – perhaps not at all.

2pm – Celebrate the work and say goodbyes
(It’d be like “camping” at Piers 30-32 and then “hiking” to Pier 39 to do some yard work, IMO.)
Anyway, thanks for your work, V-O-Cal volunteers.
