Today marks the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge's opening and San Francisco
is full of celebrations in the name of this architectural icon. Tonight we're heading to the Marina with friends to watch a grandiose fireworks show (and hopefully eat cotton candy too). My friend Caitlin is visiting from LA and I'm hoping tonight's fun will convince her to move to San Francisco.
Today I learned that there are 80,000 miles of wire in the main cables and
well over 1 million rivets! The two main towers weigh 44,000 tons each.
I can't even get my mind around that. Cheers to Golden Gate, you make
our skyline more picturesque in all your orange vermillion beauty!
