Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Jan. 20, 2014: The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California


Ottoman SF bridge


The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States.  It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.  This suspension bridge spans the Golden Gate Strait (a mile wide, three mile long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean). The structure links the U.S. city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County,  bridging both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait.

I would recommend renting a bicycle at Fishermans Wharf.

Take your time crossing the Bridge

Stop at Sausalito - Starbucks - Take in the beautiful surrounds.

Watch the Fishing Boats.

Take the Cycle track and head for the Ferry at Tiburon.

Come back to SF on the Ferry and watch as the City rises from the fog.

Great day !
