Golden Gate Bridge

This year happens to be the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. Be it far from me to tell you anything about it other than...I am so impressed. Whenever we drive on dirt roads, for goodness sake, I am impressed by the labor that went into building that road. Same thing for railroad tracks, snow sheds, the Chinese wall, the Timpanogos Cave Trail, and yes, the Golden Gate Bridge. I learned on this trip that the average depth of the water in the San Francisco Bay is 18 feet. Ships have to go through a very narrow channel so they don't beach themselves on a sand bar. We also learned about all the hidden missiles and the whole defense system put in place before World War II. Everything's amazing in San Francisco!
