After viewing these pictures from my inlaws, I am adding San Francisco to my bucket list.
From Wikipedia (link),
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the mile-wide, three-mile-long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the U.S. city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County, bridging both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
Sitting in the middle of San Francisco Bay is Alcatraz Island. Again from Wikipedia (link),
Alcatraz Island is located in the San Francisco Bay, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) offshore from San Francisco, California, United States. Often referred to as "The Rock", the small island was developed with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison (1868), and a federal prison from 1933 until 1963. In 1972, Alcatraz became a national recreation area and received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1986.
What do you know about San Francisco? One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash. Comments are open through Saturday, December 6, 10 pm in Baltimore. I'll post the winner on Sunday, December 7.
