Hundreds gather on Mt. Davidson for Easter Sunday
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Hundreds of people greeted Easter Sunday by gathering at San Francisco's highest peak for a sunrise service. They made the pilgrimage through the woods and up rugged terrain of Mount Davidson to gather at the illuminated cross.
The 91st anniversary of the early-morning tradition attracts residents from the Bay Area and from around the state.
"I think a wonderful time of worship with everyone coming together with the other churches and to celebrate Jesus Christ risen. And, it's amazing. I'm really grateful to be here," said Linda Lee Findsen of San Mateo.
"Coming here is going to be a great experience because we're close to nature, plus the big lighted cross, and the service that's happening here," said Danny Bernardo of San Diego.
