Dirty Harry and Mt. Davidson Cross

Dirty Harry was my inspiration for my latest city walk. San Francisco plays a significant role in the film. Seeing the city in the 70s pre Transamerica Pyramid skyline, where the main chase scene relies on pay phones and MUNI is priceless!  The scene at  the Mt. Davidson cross is at the pinnacle of the chase so I went to see it in person. It was a 7 mile walk roundtrip and worth it. Although, I did mildly scare myself hiking through trees, while the fog was rolling in, with no one around since the film is about a serial killer on the loose.

The cross was erected to honor of lives of those killed in the Armenian genocide.
