I have one regret from my 2007 trip to San Francisco — I didn’t drop everything and get to the Golden Gate Bridge the day I arrived, when it was sunny. Nevertheless, seeing it from the Wharf at Sunset was breathtaking, as was seeing it up close, driving on it, walking on it on a grey day.

The magnificent span is celebrated its 75th anniversary on Sunday. There is a 75th anniversary site and the San Francisco Chronicle has coverage ina couple places as well. The Atlantic, oddly enough, has a 10+ minutes video of the building of the bridge and another article called The Color, Romance, and Impact of the Golden Gate at 75.
I can’t wait to see it again.
