  1. As I was looking at the picture, I was wondering why they call it The Golden Gate Bridge as it doesn't look golden to me. Thanks for clearing up that mystery. It's fun to learn how this bridge is actually considered a romantic place to be. Though really, any place near water would likely be romantic.

    It amazes me how this bridge has stood strong even after all the massive earthquakes in the Los Angelos and California area. Just goes to show that good craftsmanship will stand the test of time.
