San Francisco Day 2 – Golden Gate Bridge

After leaving Muir Woods, where we ended up staying a good bit longer than originally planned, we drove down to the Golden Gate Bridge North overlook.  It was a pretty foggy / cloudy day so I shot some pictures of the bridge disappearing into the clouds.  We spent a few hours before driving out toward Yosemite National Park that evening.  There is an old gunnery fort on the hill overlooking the bay, but apparently I’ve misplaced a good number of my pictures, because I can’t find a single one of the fort remains to share.

I think what makes the Golden Gate Bridge so spectacular is the fact that it can be viewed from above across the bay.  The Mackinac Bridge is bigger, but as far as I know there is no similar vantage point to view from.

There were three view points, this was from the middle one. Picture shown after some HDR fiddling.
