The poor Bay Bridge

SAN FRANCISCO — In all but about two cities, a bridge like the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge would be the signature crossing. The towers have an attractive design with x-shaped trusses. The cables are lit up at night too. Even more impressive is that the Bay Bridge is really two consecutive suspension bridges end-to-end with a brief tunnel through an island followed by another bridge on the opposite side. As spectacular as that all is it can only be considered the second best bridge in San Francisco.

David drove us to Yerba Buena Island/Treasure Island on our way out of town for some views of the San Francisco skyline (and blurry photos, sadly), so we were on the western portion of the bridge. Aside from the death defying on-and-off ramps, we enjoyed the ride.
