|December 2015 (37.827, -122.488) The Golden Gate Bridge|
Behind the Golden Gate Bridge is the City of San Francisco to the right, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (the Bay Bridge) in the center, and the Oakland Hills on the left. We were lucky to have such a clear view, since the Golden Gate is often shrouded in fog.
Unlike the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge suffered no damage during the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. However, the epicenter of that earthquake was 100 km away. The bridge owner (The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway, and Transportation District) is currently completing a retrofit design of the main spans and construction will hopefully commence in 2017.
