Golden Gate Bridge

CaliforniaTravelTips
California Travel Tips host Veronica Hill takes a closer look at the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the top San Francisco attractions.
We learned it’s about about 1.7 miles from beginning to end with a 4,200 foot suspension span. It takes about an hour to walk across.

Engineering students and commoners alike marvel at the Golden Gate Bridge blueprints designed by Joseph Strauss and Irving Morrow.

Until then it was called “the bridge that couldn’t be built” due to rough ocean currents, heavy fog and 60mph winds. It was Morrow’s idea to paint it an orange vermillion, which increases its visibility in the City’s famous fog. The color is actually called “international orange”

The vista point on the Marin County side is perfect place to stop and take pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge, enjoy the city’s fabulous skyline through a viewfinder or marvel at this beautiful piece of American architecture.

Our College Motto, Mastery for Service*

(Revised by KGU ESS)

      Human nature has two sides, the one personal and individual, the other public and social. The personal and individual side, each man must live alone, the public and social side, he must share with other man. Then there is an ideal of life corresponding to each side, self-culture and self-sacrifice, respectively. And though they sound mutually exclusive, these ideals are not merely not contradictory, indeed, they are complementary. For neither is complete of itself, nor independent of the other. Self-culture pursued for its own sake is selfishness, and self-sacrifice as the only rule of life is weakness. But self-culture is justified only as its fruit is seen in self-sacrifice, and only on the basis of self-culture can self-sacrifice be truly effective.
