Recently I visited San Francisco, my birth city, and for the first time in my life walked all the way across the Golden Gate bridge. It was a beautiful day, which is rare for the city, normally it's foggy or cloudy and cold, but these pictures capture how gorgeous my city is on a beautiful day. I love San Francisco and I wanted to share why I love it with all the rest of you here on AR. There are so many things to do and see, it is so rich with culture and diversity. Enjoy!
We spotted a family of dolphins in the water, but were too fast and far to get any good pictures of them. Here is a picture of the Golden Gate bridge from below. The bridge was completed in 1937, it is the second longest suspension bridge main span in the United States, it ranks fifth as one of the most favorite architectural landmarks in America. Surprisingly, only eleven men died during construction and it cost around $37million to build. It really isn't "golden", the color is more of an orange-red and the maintenance crew climbs up on top of those suspension poles to get to the top of the towers, because of the weather and ocean salt, the bridge is always being painted. What a job!
That pointy building is the Trans-American building.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as I have.
