The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

I am just wondering why it is called The Golden Gate Bridge when it is not really gold in color. But hey, I was so happy when I saw this bridge. It was included in my travel wishlist during my second visit in the United States of America. And yes, I was finally there! 

I am always grateful to the good friends who toured us in their lovely city of San Francisco. Thanks to the cute and lovely Ate Mary and the super outgoing Brianna and to wonderful Jacky and my beautiful sister for their time and effort in touring me around in San Francisco and nearby cities and towns. I truly had fun guys and those are unforgettable moments I had in that city.

“The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. As part of both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1, the structure links the city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County. It 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.” wikipedia.

The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge “possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world”. This was  taken last September 2012.
