Golden Gates

I think this is probably one of the least common views of the Golden Gates bridge. Most of them are taken from the north side or from the east side in San Francisco. I think most tourists don’t make to this part of the city. Walking is a bit far, I’m not sure if any public transportation really goes here, getting by car is the most convenient way, at least it is how we got here, driving out to the Pacific ocean I was trying to get some views of the bridge and we found our way to El Camino del Mar.

On my prior visits to San Francisco, which were business oriented, I never had a chance to see Golden Gate Bridge up close and personal. On this trip I made sure we see it from a few different places. In fact as soon as we arrived to San Francisco, we drove over the bridge to he north side and enjoyed the view. I took a few photos, duh.., here is one of them. It was around 11PM and bitterly cold with winds from the Pacific, but parking area was fairly full and at least 3-4 other groups of folks, interestingly, mostly speaking Japanese and Chinese hanging around and taking some photos and even videos of the bridge with city behind it. Popular spot.

I wondered at that time how busy it would be here during nice sunny day. Couple days later we drove by during the day, it was like a zoo.  So if you ever come there, make sure to time it right.
