Our time in California is running out, so we are doing a last, few touristy things. Today we had planned to walk across Golden Gate Bridge, but decided to go to Mountain View cemetary instead, as that was closer. And wow – so glad we did: It is a huge plot of land off Piedmont Avenue, hilly and green, with tombs, markers, monuments, headstones and statues in all shapes and sizes, a great view of Oakland and San Francisco in the distance, beautifully maintained (although there should be a part that is kept decrepit and gothic), tranquil and very special.
A fair number of masons are buried there (as well as odd fellows, eastern stars etc.) – here are a few samples:
The official website has more information and some beautiful pictures.
