About Mount Sutro

Mount Sutro is an electronic periodical written and featuring photography by David July. In operation since January 2001, Mount Sutro is comprised of articles on various topics such as travel, nature, photography, history, music, technology and film.

Although the content and style of Mount Sutro continue to evolve, my comprehensive guide to Sutro Tower and Mount Sutro remains the flagship feature. Regularly referenced on Reddit, Twitter, blogs and other sites, the YTMND-style sub-site peoplewhatabunchofbastards.com created in July 2011 is also a favorite of visitors from the UK, Ireland and around the world.

Mount Sutro is the successor to my first website sctonline.com, created around 1996–1997 to advertise the on-site technical support services I offered to make extra money in high school. Unfortunately the domain name was allowed to expire in early 2003 and has been, for over a decade now, relegated to existence as an advert-laden "for sale" page.

Additional site details including production information, credits, licensing and disclaimers are available in the Colophon.
