Apart from a sweeping view of the Golden Gate and San Francisco (when it isn’t shrouded in fog), these are some if the attractions you find right across the bridge:
As you drive across The Golden Gate Bridge you reconnect to firm ground on what’s called Marin Headlands or The Golden Gate National Recreational Area. It’s often foggy and chilly and quite stark but there are quite a few attractions if you know where to look.
I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, but Marin – just north of the Golden Gate Bridge – is a very special place of mine. That’s why I have chosen a picture of the Golden Gate to open this blog. I love the symbolic way the bridge spans into the mist. We know we’re going somewhere though we can’t see the goal.
This picture as well as the next are from before I got the Nikon. They are shot with a small Sony digital camera.
