Peninsula AIDS Memorial Grove

Ed and Eddie at the Peninsula AIDS Memorial Grove

Sunday was a warm, pleasant afternoon. We decided to do a hike and picnic at Huddart Park in Woodside, CA. The five mile hike ended at the Peninsula AIDS Memorial Grove.

The contemplative space designed by nature is dedicated to the memory of those who have courageously fought their battle with AIDS, and in honor of all those whose lives have been affected by AIDS. The kids hiking on the trail at Huddart ParkA plaque at the grove remembers and honors almost two dozen people that died of AIDS. Of the plaques with dates, most were men that died between the years 1992 and 1996. If they lived, they would be in their 50's today.
