Here’s a beautiful night shot of the Golden Gate Bridge in California. Duane Jurma took this photo from Marshall Beach in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Last year, Golden Gate was the most visited national park location with more than 15 million visits. Visitation at America’s national parks broke all-time records in 2014 — topping 292.8 million visits to national parks.
Earlier this week, I skipped class and spent the entire day sailing around the San Francisco Bay with some wonderful people. Even when my images aren’t the greatest, it’s still lovely to have a visual remembrance of a fantastic day.
Golden Gate National Recreation Area chronicles two hundred years of history, from the Native American culture, the Spanish Empire frontier and the Mexican Republic, to maritime history, the California Gold Rush, the evolution of American coastal fortifications, and the growth of urban San Francisco. Plus it has killer views like this one.
