75 years ago today, the Golden Gate Bridge opened to pedestrians. A day later, it opened to vehicles. Named for the straight that it spans, the orange vermillion bridge has withstood the test of time. Its art deco style has attracted visitors from all over the world. She’s a beauty no matter what time of the day it is or if it’s rainy or foggy. She never quite looks the same way twice and in the ten years that I’ve lived here I never get tired of looking at her. The Golden Gate Bridge takes my breath way every time.
