One of San Francisco’s most famous landmarks spanning The Golden Gate. This was taken from the Marin County side. I don’t know of a nicer 1.7 mile walk, 220 feet above the sea on a deck supported by two cables 3’3/8" in diameter that are made up of 80,000 miles of wire. In 2012 she’ll be 75 years old … over 1.75 billion crossings and still going strong.
In 1994 The Golden Gate Bridge was named one of the Seven Civil Engineering Wonders of the United States by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
