Golden Gate Bridge, California

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

This was the fulfillment of a long-time bucket list item: wakl across the Golden Gate Bridge.
The bridge was supposed to be white, but the orange rustproofing blended so well with the setting that it remained that color.
Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the bridge.
Well, yes, it is physically possible.
Above: Angel Island

Left: Alcatraz. The highest peak, faintly visible just above the line of four boats, is Mount Diablo, almost 4,000 feet high. From the summit you can see half of California. The survey grid for most of California and all of Nevada originates there. On a clear day you can see out through the Golden Gate to the Farallon Islands offshore, across the San Andreas Fault (I've seen it).
Below: anybody seen my heart? I think I left it there somewhere.

Nice concept. Absolutely retch-worthy song.
Left and below: Seal Rocks, only no seals today.
