San Francisco Landmarks #1 - The Golden Gate Bridge

Click on the image to zoom in:

Ah, the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. This is an amazing view from Marina Drive on Fort Point.

From Wikipedia:

The Golden Gate Bridge was the largest suspension bridge in the world when it was completed in 1937... It is currently the second longest suspension bridge in the United States after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City.

Walk around a bit, and you can see views almost as stunning as in this photo taken at nearly the same spot.

It seems the bridge was having some cabling problems when this picture was snapped. :)

Check out the live camera of the bridge here.
