In 2011, DH and I had crossed the Golden Gate Bridge a few times while doing guided bus tours. We had taken lots of photos from the Fishermen's Wharf area too. This time however, on one of our days in San Francisco, we took the light rail to 19th street and then caught the #38 bus out to the park adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge.
We had to walk along this street to catch the #38...such quaint houses.
But it was all worth it!
The views from that high point were wonderful.
There was a pathway that led to the footpath on the bridge. The bridge is 1.7 miles or 2.74 km approximately and it was decided that DH would just walk out a little way and take some photos.
In the meantime I checked out some of the information boards and a statue. The statue was of Joseph Strauss the chief engineer on the bridge build.
And the gardens were lovely at the Lookout too...GGB...Golden Gate Bridge initials spelled out in succulents!
( the bridge is red of course; Golden Gate refers to the Golden Gate Strait that the bridge traverses!
