  • Golden Gate Bridge Pics

    The g/f and I decided to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and down to Chrissy Field. Here are some pics with the mandatory SF fog.

    Golden Gate Bridge opened to traffic on May 28, 1937.

    Started on the Marin side.



    The amount of concrete used on the bridge would be sufficient to build two 10-foot wide sidewalks from Chicago to Omaha.


    Water depth at the Golden Gate is more than 300 feet, but San Francisco Bay waters are, on average, just 14 feet deep.



    The two main cables of the bridge weigh 11,000 tons apiece, and each main cable contains 25,572 seperate wires.


    500 foot tower. (746' about the water)



    The Bridge spans 1.7 miles.




    Was a bit too cold for Duck44



    Total cost to build: $35 million


    From SF side looking north into Marin.


    From Chrissy Field

    Nice pics! Thanks for sharing!

    The Gate is a welcome sight when fishing out in the open water (which I do).

    It can get VERY rough out there!

      Ohhh....pretty pictures!!! The Golden Gate Bridge was one of my favorite things to see in San Francisco. I remember walking across it as a Girl Scout.

          On each of my past visits to San Francisco I always make the time to walk the Golden Gate Bridge. So much fun.

          Nice Pictures Duck even on a foggy day.

            Usually we don't stop to think about the engineering that goes into such massive structures. It really is astounding.

                  a cool look back at the 50th anniversary celebration in 1987. I was 11 and got stuck in the middle of the bridge. I remember hearing the metal creaking and bending under the weight of all the people.

                      You know I've lived in the Bay Area for all my 19 years and I've only been across the Golden Gate 1 and a half times? I drove over it once as a child with my grandparents and I biked/walked to the middle and back with my dad. Really need to get out there more, it's such an amazing thing to look at.
