Exploring the legends of Twin Peaks

In this Audiograph, we go to Twin Peaks, a signature San Francisco landmark and a focus of the city's history and legends. The Ohlone believed the peaks were once a single mountain, united as husband and wife, but they argued so much, the great spirit split them apart.

"Twin Peaks itself is sacred. You can't touch it, you can't build up there. And thankfully so. I just see that it's going to be taking care of. I think people realize what a treasure it is."
