Disappearing Golden Gate Bridge


Here is a photograph from a recent trip to San Francisco. My wife and I rented a car to head across the bridge and enjoy the views from the Marin Headlands, but as you can see, the bridge was completely fogged in. Obviously, this was unacceptable to me, a structural engineer. The next day was much clearer so we got another car and properly checked off “Golden Gate Bridge” from the engineering landmark bucket list.
